We're co-hosting a Hacktoberfest (https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com) Saturday Hackathon. Organised by PyDataMCR, HER+data MCR, PyLadiesNW, RLadiesMCR, PythonNW, and Django Girls MCR!
Let's celebrate open source over food, learning, and great company!
So what's Hacktoberfest?
Hacktoberfest (https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com — 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. See more helpful links at the bottom of this page.
You don't have to use Python, or any Data related languages to participate. In fact we have teamed up with these communities:
* PyDataMCR (https://www.meetup.com/PyData-Manchester/, https://twitter.com/PyDataMCR)
* PyLadiesNW (https://twitter.com/PyLadiesNWUK)
* Python North-West (https://twitter.com/pythonnw)
* Django-Girls Manchester (https://twitter.com/DjangoGirlsMcr)
* R Ladies (https://twitter.com/RLadiesMCR)
