Hacktoberfest Bonita Community Meet-up

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Thursday October 8, 2020
9:30am to 08.00pm UTC+02
Event is hosted online

Event Description

For the 2nd year, Bonitasoft is taking part in Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open source software, between October 1-31, where developers are encouraged and rewarded for contributing to open source projects like Bonita.

In this worldwide and friendly event, 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.

It is open to everyone and no contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

In order to make it even easier and nicer for contributors, Bonitasoft organizes a Hacktoberfest Bonita Community Day with Meets-up and an always-on Discord channel to ask questions.
