ACM Hacktober Meetup

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Monday October 12, 2020
6:15 pm to 9:00pm 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.

Thapar ACM Student Chapter is a technical society of TIET, Patiala. Under the guidance of one of the most premier organizations in the computing world, ACM, we strive towards a single goal i.e. improving the coding culture at Thapar. With some of the most brilliant minds of Thapar working as the backbone of the society, we are leaving no stones unturned. Organizing classes and workshop for everyone in the college, as we firmly believe that “Learning knows no boundaries.” Not only this, we also encourage participation in different events amongst our family, who have then gone to great heights like cracking ICPC, winning hackathons and the list just goes on. Our members have also been selected for internships in some amazing companies like Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, etc. In the end, we are just a bunch of peeps who like to code, have fun and maybe, change the world?.
