We’re big fans of Hacktoberfest, a month-long celebration of open source. At Sparkbox, we’re given eight hours a week to explore, contribute, and give back to our industry, so Hacktoberfest is right up our alley and something we look forward to every year.
Here’s a list of some contributions that we Sparkboxers made:
- Patrick helped Bouncy Ball by fixing a problem with the React demo in Firefox, and by making the ball bounce correctly in the D3 demo. He also contributed pattern library documentation to the Sparkbox Standard, and secured our Splinter project by updating a few vulnerable dependencies.
- Mike seeded development data for a wishlist fulfillment app for homeless children with astronauts and real Amazon product links.
- Philip made some code visualization edits to Bryan’s website, updated some images on the Girl Develop It Dayton website, and added a sweet SVG logo to the Dayton Clean Coders website.
- Heather fixed broken links on the GDI Resources repo and submitted several updates to the Sparkbox Standard. Heather also added to a Fempire repository that documents female tech speakers and organizers.
- Anastasia added two women tech speakers to the Fempire repository and updated a broken link for Awesome First PR repository.
- Kasey added a missing dependency to the Downpour module as well as made various updates to the Standard repo.
- Adam leveled up his Emacs game and contributed features to two packages: sauron and ivy-lobsters. He also cleaned up the cleaned up the eslint-config-sparkbox repo as well as made some build improvements to the BR Modern CSS demo.
- Bryan fixed some style bugs in the Opsdroid Electron app, and worked on error messages for ChaiJS.
