Hacktoberfest Online @DEA-GA

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Wednesday October 28, 2020
9:00am to 5:00pm UTC+11
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.

Hacktoberfest @GA is organised within DEA, but all DEA users and GA staff are welcome to attend
