Event Description

The ACM Student Chapter of PES University Electronic City Campus presents Hacktoberfest Hacknight 2.0!

We are so excited to let you know that amidst the pandemic, we have planned a fun-filled 24 hours dedicated just to Open-Source. Let's all virtually contribute to projects and hustle to ensure that our little piece of code makes impactful changes to real-world applications. With interactive webinars, constant technical support, lots of fun projects, and even some exciting goodies, everyone from beginners to the most advanced have a place at Hacknight 2.0. ACM PESU ECC has a lot more in store for you! So hurry up, and register now to be a part of this wonderful experience!

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.
