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.

Imagiminds wants to welcome you all to its hands-on demo workshop on "How To Ace the HacktoberFest" with speaker - Mr. Praveen Kumar Purushothaman who is a highly motivated, passionate, hard-core web developer with diverse experience in developing web applications, hybrid mobile apps, and cloud computing solutions. He is a Blogger, YouTuber, Mentor, Open Source Contributor & Specialist on React JS, Redux, MERN Stack & LAMP Stack. He's also Microsoft Most Valuable Professional and a Guinness Record holder (Microsoft App Fest).
