Giving back to the community [DELHI]

Hacktoberfest Online Meetup

Friday October 30, 2020
14:00 to 15:00 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.
Join us for a afternoon to debunk several myths about open source, learn about some of common troubles beginners face when starting out and how to overcome them. You can ask questions and get live answers during the event.

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