To Hacktoberfest and Beyond!

Brinck Slattery • Nov 1 2018

As Hacktoberfest draws to a close, we couldn't be happier with how it turned out - thanks so much to all the contributors who made this month so awesome! We had over 40 unique contributors submit 115 pull requests on LBRY's repos alone, and developers from our staff worked on a number of thorny issues for other open source projects.

The fun doesn't have to stop just because October is over - if you're inspired to contribute to the LBRY project, you can get started right away at

Brinck’s range of experience includes national political campaigns, crisis PR, SEO writing and optimization, digital marketing, RV sales, construction labor, and a variety of other strange and interesting pursuits (feel free to ask).

An inveterate music and media lover, Brinck remembers the pain of Kazaa and Limewire, and is seriously psyched about living in the future where it’s easy to compensate artists directly for their work.

He lives in Manchester, NH and can be regularly found lurking wherever the latest music is blaring.
