Event Description

About Fedora

The Fedora Project is a community of people working together to build a free and open source software platform and to collaborate on and share user-focused solutions built on that platform. Or, in plain English, we make an operating system and we make it easy for you do useful stuff with it.
The Fedora community includes thousands of individuals with different views and approaches, but together we share some common values. We call these the “Four Foundations”: Freedom, Friends, Features, and First.

We, on the behalf of Fedora Project, invite you to celebrate and give back to the open-source community with one pull request at a time. You are invited to participate and contribute to projects that add value to the community. Be it big or small, all contributions are welcome irrespective of your skills and experience you have. To join our small get together where we will talk about the Fedora Project and some of our exciting projects that bring value to the community, follow this link.

Rules and Rewards

To be entitled to the limited edition Hacktoberfest tshirt, you must first register here and make four quality pull requests against issues tagged hacktoberfest in the month of October 2020.
