Hi, we are hosting a Hacktoberfest hackathon in Delhi on Oct 19.

Registration link - https://forms.gle/fEZpsmrKHz5AY8wj6

Hacktoberfest encourages developers to participate and work on the open-source (FOSS) in the month of October. This is the avenue wherein devs can pick and choose the open-source they want to contribute to on GitHub and submit PR’s that would affect the open-source project in a meaningful way. It could be as simple as authoring a README file on the open-source projects that one used earlier and struggled while working with it. This can be considered the time where one takes time and gives back something meaningful to the Open Source community.

What’s in it for all of us attending?

We will be organizing a couple of technical talks during the Hacktoberfest and also have engineers from Gojek show you around the office and tell you about how things work at Gojek. Our offices are open for everyone interested in tech during the above hack day and while everyone is contributing to OSS, we will also be providing lunch, snacks, and goodies for all those who will be joining us.

First, sign up on the Hacktoberfest site at https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com. To qualify for the official limited edition Hacktoberfest t-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 the behavior is not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate.

Completing your first PR during this event gets you a special t-shirt! Stickers and other goodies are available for everyone who attends the hackathon.
