October is once again behind us and our most successful ServiceNow Hacktoberfest has concluded! Here are the final numbers for 2022:
520 Pull requests. A 15% increase over last year, but a HUGE increase of pull requests in projects that required higher-effort participation. 64% of Pull Requests this year were in higher-effort projects, compared to 14% last year. 396 Forks. A 36% increase over last year. 201 Unique Participants.
One of the ongoing issues that we deal with in the Developer Program is the continuity of the free Personal Developer Instances (PDI). No matter how well intentioned you are, it is always possible to have a time period where you are out of the office and miss the email about your Developer Instance expiring. I don’t like the idea of anyone losing their work but there is only so much we can do to prevent it.
We are past the half-way point of Hacktoberfest and wanted to highlight the amazing progress so far! If you haven’t participated yet, you still have time! Check out our Hacktoberfest 2022 post to get started.

This week, we are continuing the San Diego Release Season content with new features centered around managing your development. These include source control, bulk adding to global bundles, and converting your app records.
So what’s new? Enhanced Source Control stashing: Previously, when you stashed changes there wasn’t much info available around the stash after the fact. The new enhancement provides more details.
Convert custom applications to upgrade from the application repository - Previously, if you had an application you installed into your production environment with update sets instead of the application repository, you would need to involve ServiceNow’s support team to convert the application to be able to receive updates through the app repo.
