*Hacktoberfest Details*

It’s #Hacktoberfest 2018 and Girl Develop It Pittsburgh is joining the fun! Let’s celebrate open source over coffee, learning, and great company.

What's Hacktoberfest?

https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/details

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. Sign up to participate online https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/.

Hacktoberfest Rules and Prizes

First sign up on the Hacktoberfest site (https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/). 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.)

Connect with other Hacktoberfest participants (Hacktobefestants?) by using the hashtag, #hacktoberfest, on your social media platform of choice.

*General Details*

Do you like coding with friends? Like really great coffee? Come out to GDI's Code & Coffee!

Code and Coffee is a monthly opportunity for you to work on your own projects, continue practicing what you've been learning, and meet others who share your interests. Bring your laptop, your recent projects, and your programming problems and questions.

Have a project idea and some skills, but haven’t attended a GDI event yet? Want to focus on helping others with their projects? You're welcome too!

This is also a great event for first time attendees who just want to socialize. We're very friendly and would love to have you join us. :)

As a group, we’ll hold each other accountable for completing our projects, and provide on-going support and feedback.

This event is free, but we ask that you make a small purchase. The coffee shop is being kind enough to open outside their normal hours for us, and we like supporting local businesses. :)

Feel free to come by for the whole thing or drop in when you have time.

Need a ride to the event or willing to drive others? Please share in the comments!
