Hacktoberfest 2020 - Open Hack Event

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Saturday October 17, 2020
1:00pm to 4:00pm MDT
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.

Join the Kalispell Software Crafters meetup group for our event on our Slack/Discord community! Reach out to an organizer for invite links. For more information see our Meetup page here: https://www.meetup.com/Kalispell-Software-Crafters/events/273348898/

This is a group for anyone, of any skill level and background, interested in the development, engineering, and craft of building and designing software. Topics may include code katas, SOLID design discussions, TDD, agile development, various programming languages and frameworks, code retreat events, volunteer work, mentoring, and anything the group is interested in as we move forward. If you have a topic that you'd like to present (be that for 15 minutes, an hour, or whatever you need) let us know and we'll set it up! The skills and interests of our regular members range from .NET, Android, and front-end design, to embedded programming, Azure, game development, Ruby and clean code. We welcome everyone!
