Hello, Hacktoberfest! 🎃

We love Open Source (I'm sure you've already known this) and many of you have already jumped in to add a thing or two to our open source step library. Well, if you continue to contribute to our (or in fact to any open source) projects on GitHub, you can get a limited edition T-shirt from Digital Ocean as part of Hacktoberfest.
