Hacktoberfest NITK

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Friday October 2, 2020
6:00pm to Oct 4, 7:00pm 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.

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.

We are a group of computer science enthusiasts with a drive to promote the computer science culture in our college and support fellow students in the field. We started as a google group in the early 2000s for discussions related to trending tech on “Web”, hence the name Web Enthusiasts’ Club (Web Club in short). Since then, we have expanded our horizon, and now, we are major promoters of Competitive Programming, Kaggle and Machine Learning, Linux, Security, and Open Source culture in NITK. Currently, we are a team of 70+ students coming from various branches and years.
