Every October, open source projects participate in a global event called Hacktoberfest. The event promotes open source and helps beginners learn to contribute. This year HashiCorp's Terraform AWS Provider and Nomad projects would like your help! We hope to spread the word about our OSS work and connect with practitioners who are interested in learning how to contribute.
» What’s Hacktoberfest?
The rules are simple: submit four valid pull requests to an open project on GitHub, and your reward is a t-shirt! Last year 46,088 people completed the challenge. The four pull requests can be across any open source project. For more information, see the FAQ for Hacktoberfest. The challenge completes at the end of the month.

First, start reviewing the contribution guidelines for each project (Terraform AWS Provider Contributing guides), where you’ll find out what we look for in a pull request. Then, search open issues for something that seems interesting to try. We encourage first time contributors to find a small documentation fix or bug report to work on and submit a PR.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions! If you need some help, drop a reply to the “Hacktoberfest 2019” topic in our community forum and one of the team can help.There’s all sorts of new things to learn. We’ll review your pull request within a week, as per Hacktoberfest guidelines and give some feedback!
