Contribute to Jenkins X as part of Hacktoberfest

Join us in celebrating Hacktoberfest


Hacktoberfest is a month-long global celebration of open source software.

From October 1 to October 31, submit four pull requests to qualify for the limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt. All backgrounds and skill levels are encouraged to participate in Hacktoberfest and join a global community of open source contributors.

We’d love for you to contribute to the Jenkins X project!

All pull requests will count towards your Hacktoberfest challenge. Issues labelled “hacktoberfest” generally indicate good first issues. Jenkins X welcomes contributors to both:

Contribute to jx

Jenkins X is an open source project and we welcome new contributors. There are plenty of open issues, and we welcome your help in making Jenkins X even more awesome.

Jenkins X is written largely in Go, but you don’t need to be an expert to contribute! If you are new to the project, search for issues labelled “good-first-issue”, a number of which we’ve also given the “hacktoberfest” label. Our Contributing Guide has advice for getting started with contributing to Jenkins X.

Contribute to the docs

We welcome your help in making the Jenkins X documenation better. If you see areas of the documentation that need fixing or augmentation please raise a pull request! Our guide for Contributing to the Documentation has advice for getting started with contributing to the Jenkins X docs.
