Event Description

Different tech communities in Cebu City, Philippines have come together to bring #hacktoberfest to our humble side of the globe.

Participating Communities include Angular Cebu, AWS User Group Central Visayas, Cebu Game Dev, Cebu WordPress Meetup, Facebook Developers Circle Cebu City, Google Developers Group Cebu, JavaScript Cebu, Laravel Cebu, PizzaPy Python Users Group Cebu, React Cebu, Vue Cebu among others.


Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with Dev & Intel — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they've just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

Can't make it to this online meetup? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Sign up to participate today.
