Contribute Remote Edition // Hacktoberfest

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

06:00pm to 08:00pm UTC+02
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.

Can't make it to this online meetup? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Sign up to participate today.

Rules and Rewards

What is Contribute?

A meetup to help you get started contributing to Open Source Projects. We loved hosting Hacktoberfest, so our engineers, inspired by an evening contributing to open source projects wanted to keep on giving back.

Who should attend?

Anyone who wants to contribute to open source projects in Ruby, React, React Native JavaScript, Rails and anything else you find interesting.
First-time contributors, get supported by experienced open source contributors to get your first PR's into the open-source community.
Experienced Contributors, join our team of engineers and get more support for your open source projects.

We are a growing team organized in autonomous small feature teams, all sharing the same obsession: provide the best experience for the users of our products and change the way people access healthcare. Our platform is a Ruby on Rails / React monolith, and we love this stack! We organize this event to contribute mainly to Ruby open source projects, but also Javascript for those who are not familiar with this framework. We want to provide our tech skills to help people contribute to open source projects... and maybe help them making their first PR!
