Hacktoberfest Meetup by Trinity Cyber Forum, IPEC

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Friday October 9, 2020
06:00 PM to 07:30 PM 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.

Meetup by Trinity Cyber Forum

Trinity last year organized a Hacktoberfest event in Inderprastha Engineering College in association with coding blocks, this year Trinity decided to go solo, and we're organizing Hacktoberfest with the same spirit for open source.
