How To Contribute to This Project

Here are 3 quick and painless steps to contribute to this project:

  • Add a program in any language. (A simple Hello World would suffice.) To do so, first create an issue with the task you are doing, for example: "Issue - creating bubble sort in C". Add the HacktoberFest label in the issue and assign the issue to yourself. Create a pull request in response to that issue and finally submit it for review.

  • Name your branch username_hello_world_in_c.

    Also create a directory for any new program if it doesn't exist. eg. hello_world, bubble_sort. Inside these directories you can create your own file named program_name.language_extension (hello_world.cpp) Create a commit of the form - fixes #(issue_number)

  • Finally, wait for it to be merged!
