How to participate

Sign up for the event on the Hacktoberfest website and visit Milvus Hactoberfest 2021 landing page. If you’re new to the open source world, no worries, we’ve got you covered. Here are some useful resources for beginners:

Below we’ve prepared a number of issues of different specialties to kick off the event, but you are free to wander around the Milvus Project and take on any existing issue or open a new issue you find interesting. Just don’t forget to mention Hacktoberfest in your PR title to make sure it counts toward your Hacktoberfest participation.

Code 👩🏻‍💻

As the traditional way to contribute to open source projects, we happily welcome code contributions - the more the merrier! We’ve labeled a series of issues based on difficulty as “beginner”, “intermediate”, and “advanced” (Jackpot if you are to solve it!) for contributors of all skill levels. Click the issue links to learn more.

Documentation 📚

Help improve our documentation! We’re always looking to improve our website and associated docs. If you are a newbie contributor, this is a great place to get your feet wet with Milvus. We’ve prepared a list of newbie-friendly Hacktoberfest issues ready to be tackled.

  • Milvus technical documentation
  • Milvus Go API reference documentation

Community content 📝

The Milvus community is more than just code! In addition to documentation and direct code contributions, there are lots of other areas to show off your creativity. Some examples include:

  • Showcases of a project you’ve built with Milvus
  • Blog posts about interesting use cases or topics related to vector database technology
  • Video content
  • Website design
  • Artwork
  • Anything else you can think of!


We’re also looking for new projects to add to the Bootcamp. If you have a project idea you’d like to build on, even if it is just a concept, we encourage you to post a proposal in the “Hacktoberfest” category to stir up some discussions.
