UPA Hack Club Hacktoberfest

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Saturday October 17, 2020
9:00am to 5:59pm PDT
Event is hosted online

Event Description

Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with Dev & Intel — is a month-long event that encourages contributing to open source software. Participants make pull request to open-source repositories on GitHub and provide bug fixes, modifications, and changes to contribute to free software.

The UPA Hack Club is hosting a virtual Hacktoberfest event to encourage development and teach about working on projects with pull requests. We hope to allow you to showcase your development skills, meet people with similar interests, and learn things you'll be able to apply to other projects as well.
