Win a Hacktoberfest tshirt by making five pull requests (PRs) between October 1–31. PRs can be to any public repo on GitHub. The PR must contain commits you made yourself (not to your own repo). PRs reported by maintainers as spam or that are automated will be marked as invalid and won’t count towards the shirt. This year, the first 50,000 of you can open source supporters earn a T-shirt (compared with 30,000 in 2017). Also, if you make at least one pull request on any Microsoft repo between October 1st – 31st, you’ll receive a limited edition t-shirt designed by Ashley McNamara (Cloud Developer Advocate and graphic designer).
