Hacktoberfest Saturdays: Caribbean

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Saturday October 10, 2020
1:00pm to 5:00pm UTC-04
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.

Can't make it to this online meetup? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Sign up to participate today.

About Hacktoberfest Saturdays

We believe we work better and stay committed to our goals by working together. That's why we decided to create a four-hour online coworking space on Saturday afternoons (Eastern Daylight Time) for 100% focused, deep-work time, as well as to help support each other if we have any issues that need some rubber-ducking :D

Rules and Rewards

First, sign up on the Hacktoberfest site at https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com. To qualify for the official limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt, you must register and make four pull requests between October 1-31. Pull requests can be to any public repo on GitHub, not just the ones with issues labeled Hacktoberfest. If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam or spammy behavior, or not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate.
