Event Description

Code With GirlScript Bangalore is an initiative by GirlScript Bangalore to help the people explore the Open Source world 👨‍💻👩‍💻 and take their first step towards programming and contributing.

Find more about our program at our GitHub Repository

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.
