Hacktoberfest Mob Edition

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Saturday October 17, 2020
10:00am to 5:00pm CET
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 will be working in pairs and mobs to make contributions to open source repositories chosen by the group. Please note that for each PR only one person can be attributed for getting merch. Our main goal is to have fun together, learn, and contribute, and getting some swag would just be a positive side-effect.


  • Install Discord
  • Join our Discord server
  • Make sure that your microphone, webcam and screen sharing set up work
  • Ensure that you have a dev environment set up for the language you want to contribute in

Pull requests can be to any public repo on GitHub, not just the ones with issues labeled Hacktoberfest. If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam or spammy behavior, or not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate.
