Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open-source software. It happens every year in October. During this event, everyone can support open-source by contributing changes and then earn limited-edition swag. The main idea of this event is to promote open source contributions around the world.

Last October, I successfully completed the #Hacktoberfest2020 challenge by submitting 4 successful PRs (Pull Requests):
