Intuit Hacktoberfest Online Meetup: APAC/EMEA

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Tuesday October 13, 2020
5:00pm to 7:00pm IST
Event is hosted online

Event Description

One of the best parts of Hacktoberfest is the chance to connect with other “open sourcerors”. Join Intuit, proud maker of QuickBooks, TurboTax and Mint, to connect in a fun, low-pressure environment, learn about each other's open source projects, share tips and tricks to help each other with PRs and more!

Contributors with at least 4 PRs accepted to Intuit projects will be eligible to earn rewards. While we’re focused on code contributions, documentation, translation and design contributions are welcome too!

About Hacktoberfest

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.

Rules and Rewards

First, sign up on the Hacktoberfest site at https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com. To qualify for the official limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt, you must register and make four pull requests between October 1-31. Pull requests can be to any public repo on GitHub, not just the ones with issues labeled Hacktoberfest. If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam or spammy behavior, or not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate.

Connect with other Hacktoberfest participants by using @DigitalOcean, @hacktoberfest, #hacktoberfest on your social media platform of choice.
