Hacktoberfest Meetup by DevelopHowTo

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Tuesday October 20, 2020
9:00am to 9:00pm IST
Event is hosted online

Event Description

DevelopHowto Presents its online meetup on 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.
