Testimonials from Chimoney Hacktoberfest 2022 Contributors

Discover Insights from Our Contributors of the Previous Year about Their Chimoney

My entire experience was great. I'm originally a developer, but the contributions I made were all no-code. My goal for this year's Hacktoberfest was to try to make direct meaningful contributions to organizations, and I was able to achieve that with the help of chimoney. ~Treasure, Chimoney Community member & Contributor.

My whole experience while contributing to the Chimoney Hacktoberfest project was great and I really loved the incentives as they motivated me and the other contributors to contribute to the issues. ~Khadeejah. ChiSquad Member & Contributor.

Chimoney participation in the Hacktoberfest 2022 is an awesome move! I’m glad we didn’t not only gained new insights, ideas, and innovation from the initiative but also were able to encourage open source contributors and reward contributors with merged PRs. The Chimoney community project is available for people across the globe to contribute to afterwards. ~Omotola, Former Chimoney Community/DevRel Lead.

We were able to discover some bugs in the Developer API which were raised and fixed via the Chimoney Repo. Contributors built SDKs for the Chimoney API to enable developers to integrate within their code. We were also able to see other use cases of the Developer API and the Unispend widget. ~Eloghosa, Software Engineer, Chimoney Project Maintainer.
