Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Saturday October 17, 2020
4:00pm to 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.

We, the IEEE AJCE, are organizing this event to encourage up and coming devs to get into the field of Open Source. We would love to have your contributions to the issues that we have encountered, and your unique innovation/creation are also welcome in our repos. Feel free to join us for the event. Sign up at https://bit.ly/HACKAJCE
