Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Saturday October 10, 2020
04:30pm to Oct 12, 04:30pm IST
Event is hosted online

Event Description

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.

We have an amazing sub-event and tech talks lined up for you if you feel pumped up. Not interested yet? Beat this.

This year, raising the spirit of Hacktoberfest, we are happy to announce a Hacktoberfest Contributions Sprint for anyone eager to contribute to open-source. For more information: visit: https://github.com/MozPhoenixClubJUET/Hacktoberfest-2020

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