Cosmos Community Announces its Month-long October Codefest
The era of the internet has come and is undoubtedly the future of the globe, and to this end, the Cosmos Community is building a community of innovators and developers who will champion the internet backed creativity that would move the world forward and provide real-time solutions to problems covering different aspects of human living in a different part of the world.
Cosmos community holds live, interactive workshops which are designed to educate and present real-time practice to developers within the Cosmos community. Recently, Cosmos announced via its Twitter handle the much anticipated October Codefest, a one-month-long virtual coding event to celebrate open-source software development and expand the Cosmos community.
The codefest is not only designed for top developers around the world, nor is it a convergence of the who-is-who of blockchain. Instead, it is also an open invitation to all who want to embrace this software development regardless of their background or skill level. The community ensures that everyone is met at their level and can be connected to the flow.
Cosmos is a decentralised future-oriented ecosystem of interconnected apps and services that is quickly growing. The primary goal of this event is to promote open-source software projects and assist anyone interested in getting started contributing to them. Hence, the event is accessible to people of different ability levels. Also, October Codefest, which will be held in October, is just the beginning of learning how open-source projects work.
How to Join
Although anyone with any skill level is invited to join, to be considered eligible for participation, they would have to meet specific criteria dependent on them. Interested persons must produce and merge at least one pull request between October 1 and October 31, 2021, to be eligible to participate. These pull requests can be made to any GitHub repo in the Tendermint or Cosmos organisations, as well as one of the Featured Projects qualifying repos.
Before working contributions, it is essential to note that only participants who play according to the laid out Code of Conduct for the project will be considered. Only PRs that follow the project’s Code of Conduct will be eligible. Once a project maintainer spots any pull request as spam or illegal behaviour is spotted, the request would be deemed ineligible.
For those excited about contributing to open-source projects but don’t have the know-how, showing everyone the way is why Tendermint is organising October Codefest alongside providing an enabling community to help every participant get the right direction and support they would need.
Mentored bugs have been set aside to aid beginners. From correcting issues in Cosmos’ projects to refining documentation and updating the readme files, every effort from beginners will be greatly admired. That’s a good place to contribute.
After installing a Github and setting up an account, participants can look through the featured projects and pick anyone of their interests they would like to contribute to. Afterwards, comment on the selected issue, and a project maintainer would be alerted, and the issue would then be assigned. More inquiries can be made by contacting the Cosmos community.
