Hacktoberfest Pro Prep

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Saturday October 3, 2020
7:15pm to Oct 13, 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 us for an educative experience, with collaboration with leading organizations in Ed-tech.
