Event Description

Kubernets Inc is a full-cycle a software development & Digital transformation consulting company. Build custom software and products for startups, MSMEs, SMEs and fast-growing Enterprises and Kubernets Tech Academy welcomes you to Hacktoberfest Online Meetup! An initiative in collaboration with Major League Hacking to bring Hacktoberfest to the glory it deserves!

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.
