A big shout out to our top contributors - @harishk and @ajithr! :loudspeaker:

We unfortunately kickstarted this only midway into October, but are buoyed by the participation and encouragement we received. Next time, we will aspire to be ready for Hacktoberfest well before Oct 1! Thank you for inspiring us :heart_hands:

Thank you team for running this. I would’ve loved tackling some of the code related issues (will probably get to them irrespective of Hacktoberfest) but didn’t realize how much I loved writing READMEs until now!

Cheers to others who contributed too!

Thank you so much I really feel great to see myself among the top contributors, I don’t think it would have been possible to achieve the Top contributors without each and every one of your efforts!
Special Thanks to @tejakummarikuntla @zach_jones_noel
