Hacktoberfest 2020 GDG Goa

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Sunday October 11, 2020
4:00pm to 5:30pm IST
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.

To put it in a nutshell, GDG stands for Google Developer Group and GDG Goa is a community where tech-enthusiasts meet to discuss and work with several Open-Source developer resources and products. A GDG can take many forms — from just a few people getting together to large gatherings with demos and lectures, to events like code sprints and hackathons.
