It’s Hacktoberfest time once again!
Here’s what we’ve planned for our session, scheduled for October 13th, 2019. Have a look at our tentative agenda:
Please make sure to bring along your own laptop/MacBook. Look around on GitHub to find best suitable repositories you’d like to contribute towards!
Just in case, we’ll also provide a tiny selection of fall-back repositories for you to work on.
Also, we’ll be taking and publishing photos of the event. If you do not wish to be seen on the web, please let us know beforehand! And as usual, the meetup, great food and drinks will be provided
Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with DEV — 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 event? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Sign up to participate today.
Rules and prizes
First, sign up on the Hacktoberfest site. To qualify for the official limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt, you must register and make four pull requests between October 1-31. Pull requests can be to any public repo on GitHub, not just the ones with issues labeled Hacktoberfest. If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam or behavior not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate.
Connect with other Hacktoberfest participants by using #hacktoberfest on your social media platform of choice.
Please read our Events Code of Conduct before attending.
You will find parking spaces in the surrounding streets and car parks.
