Pencil2D & Hacktoberfest

Every year we take this opportunity to welcome potential Pencil2D contributors and to reward them for helping us to make Pencil2D better we’ve decided to make a dedicated page to make this a recurrent event that our users and contributors can look forward to!

Contribution Guides

We’ve created two guides to contributing to Pencil2D for Hacktoberfest, one for coders and one for everyone else looking to help. We have jobs from making new features and fixing bugs, to improving our website, to helping create the user documentation or translating and proofreading our application. Please check out one or both of these if you want to learn more:

Note: Pencil2D is not related or sponsored by Digital Ocean in any way. We are simply promoting their event which has a beneficial impact in the open-source community and should not be considered as corporate endorsement of any kind to our project.
