Event Description

Getting started with Stripe and open-source Q&A

Come check out our Hacktoberfest event on the Stripe Developers YouTube page where we'll show you our developers tips and tricks for getting started with Stripe and meet some open source maintainers building on Stripe. We'll go over using the Stripe API, CLI, and pre-built samples, and have a Q&A with Jofferson Tiquez of Vue Stripe Checkout, Nick DeJesus of use-shopping-cart, and Jerome Leclanche of dj-stripe.

What is 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.
