Event Description

This meeting will be ONLINE at https://meet.bocajs.org#

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.

- Introduction to what Hacktoberfest and talk to those have have attended last year.
- Introduction Github and Contributing to Open Source
- Floors open to anyone that wants to talk about their open source project they love or have created.
- We'll spend the rest of the night submitting PRs to different projects the community has group up
