Event Description

An open event for people to come and contribute to Open Source as part of Hacktoberfest, everyone is welcome!!

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.

It happens in the month of October every year. ThoughtWorks Chennai is hosting the event to promote and support contributing to Open Source! The event is organized by a passionate group of open sorcerers and sponsored by ThoughtWorks.
