Event Description

WWCSF is participating in Hacktoberfest by holding a hackathon to promote and work on open-source projects that help empower women in tech. Everyone who would like to work on this effort is welcome. Feel free to bring your own project, or come help on one of the projects we’re highlighting. To learn more about how Hacktoberfest works, see the bottom half of this description.

6:00 - 6:30pm: Introductions & featured open-source projects
6:30 - 8:00pm: Make contributions to open source!

Women Who Code has open-source projects that we'd be thrilled to have help with. Note that most of them require admin permissions to be granted first, (and the event hosts are not those people!) so request to be a contributor here ASAP: https://womenwhocode.github.io/

One open-source project WWCode SF has been partnering with is Techtonica - it provides free tech training and job placement for unemployed or underemployed folks, and it’s online curriculum is free. Anyone can help by picking up an issue here:
