Prepare to Forge Your Future with Hacktoberfest and Pragmatic Bookshelf

1 minute read

Hacktoberfest is just days away! Are you thinking of participating? Then take these next couple of weeks to learn what you’ll need to make contributing to open source easier.

To help with that, from now until the end of October 2023 (read: the end of Hacktoberfest), Pragmatic Bookshelf is offering 30% off the ebook and audio versions of the books in their Open Source line! Use the code HACKTOBERFEST23.

Forge Your Future with Open Source is the first and only book all about how to contribute to free and open source software projects. Learn how to find the right project for your needs, as well as all of those previously unwritten rules and expectations that come with contributing to open source. With this book, you’ll be well on your way to being a Hacktoberfest star and lifelong open source contributor.

Program Management for Open Source Projects takes your open source contributions to the next level. With chapters on bug triage, communication, and process design, it will help you scale up to handle a wave of Hacktoberfest contributions.

Both books help all contributors to free and open source software projects, whether you’re a programmer or not. There are a lot of ways that non-coders can help with open source. Buy these books and make a difference, regardless of whether you feel comfortable writing a single line of code.

So what are you waiting for? Grab one or both of these books today so you’ll be ready to hit the ground running when Hacktoberfest starts! That discount code again:
