Skilltober with Alexa

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Friday October 9, 2020
9:00am to Oct 10, 9:00pm IST
Event is hosted online

Event Description

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.
Join AlexaDevelopers SRM for one of its kind Skilltober and get to know how essential open source has become. Contribute, Pull, Develop, Flaunt or everything you need to know this October, under Alexa's Repo!
