Welcome to Hacktoberfest Scotland
This event is organised by Craig Porteous and Paul Broadwith. This is the third year we have organised and hosted a #Hacktoberfest event but this one will be a little different.
As we can't get together in person, we'll meet using Microsoft Teams. All attendees will receive an invite to a Team where we will have three dedicated channels:
- The Sessions channel will host three great speakers talking about git, open source and everything Hacktoberfest is about.
- The "My first hacktoberfest" channel is a great place to get started with Hacktoberfest, with help from us and the community to get you to your first pull request.
- The Hacking channel is for sharing content, links, talking about great projects, issues and repos.
Everyone who signs up will receive a Microsoft Teams invite within 48 hours or registering in October so you can jump in and chat, share and learn all month, not just during the event.
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.
