Hacktoberfest 2020 is all wrapped up and finished. What a fun event it was this year. Our awesome developer MVPs did a great job setting up and coordinating the Now Components GitHub org for the dozen of repositories that were collaborated on there. It resulted in my first podcast recording ever with the Author of Podcasting for Dummies Chuck Tomasi. Brad and I acted as maintainers on both the component and spoke orgs, which was a ton of fun.
Our own Developer Advocate, Andrew Barnes joins Break Point to talk about Hacktoberfest, the annual challenge to promote open source development, how it ties in with ServiceNow, how you can participate, and swag you can earn.

For the past several years, we have piggy-backed on the Digital Ocean event of Hacktoberfest. It started in 2017 when Josh Nerius and Dave Slusher (Former Developer Advocates) put together a system to allow ServiceNow developers to accept GitHub pull requests.
Last year, the focus was around creating Spokes for IntegrationHub. You can check out the summary blog post about that lovely event! My favorite part was traveling to Minneapolis and visiting with Developer MVP and Meetup Organizer Jace Benson for his chapters Hacktoberfest event!
