It’s Hacktoberfest time!
Here’s what’s gonna happen on 2 October, 2018:
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 by InVision and their awesome chefs <3
What’s the Hacktoberfest about?
Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with GitHub and Twilio — 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 ones 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.
Rules and Prizes
First, sign up on the Hacktoberfest site. If you open up five pull requests between October 1 and October 31, you’ll win a free, limited edition Hacktoberfest t-shirt. (Pull requests do not have to be merged and accepted; as long as they’ve been opened between the very start of October 1 and the very end of October 31, they count towards a free t-shirt.)
Please read our Events Code of Conduct before attending.
You will find parking spaces in the surrounding streets and car parks.
