Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with Dev & Intel — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they’ve just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.
Under the flagship of DigitalOcean in partnership with Dev & Intel, we are proud to invite registrations for our Hacktoberfest.
Project XCoV19 aims to build a software that guides patients to the nearest hospital, streamlines patient flow, and models the spread of the virus in order to better anticipate hospital needs.
Current hospital management systems (HMS) are not designed for Covid19 like emergency situations. So we use a novel approach because we leverage a model that is flexible, decoupled, low cost, and requires minimal training time.
Rules and Rewards
First, sign up on the Hacktoberfest site at https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com. To qualify for the official limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt, you must register and make four pull requests between October 1-31.

If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam or spammy behavior, or not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate.
