Hacktoberfest with OpenGenus

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Sunday October 11, 2020
11:00am to 2:00pm UTC+04
Event is hosted online

Event Description

This event is organized by OpenGenus to introduce contributors to the rules of Hacktoberfest and recap the ways one can contribute to OpenGenus.

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.
