Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Event is hosted online

Event Description

What is the event all about?

OpenSource has been the biggest revolution that happened in past few years in the software industry and to celebrate the same culture DSC, GGV has come up with an idea to organize a month-long learning-packed OpenSource event with a vision that coincides with the Hacktoberfest's mission.

The next month will be amazing with project contributions, workshops and industry talks along with DSC GGV.

What is Hacktoberfest ?

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.

Developer Student Club is an initiative by Google that aims to create university-based communities for students interested in Google developer technologies and flourish these communities with a technological mindset and a vision to create-innovate-collaborate to build solutions for a better tomorrow. This club is aimed at inspiring and training students who will encourage other students on their campuses to learn newer areas of technologies that will equip them with the right skill sets as they step out of colleges to join the workforce. Through in-person meetups, university students are empowered to learn together and use technology to solve real-life problems with local businesses and start-ups. As this club is a Global community, everyone has access to reach out or connect with people across the globe, learn things together, solve problems together.
