Hacktoberfest Check-In #3!

Online event

Join us for at the first weekly Check-In for Hacktoberfest 2020! It’s that time of year again…for the freshest stickers in Hackerdom! And a sweet t-shirt to boot! Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with Dev & Intel — 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. Locally, this event usually occurs in person at theClubhou.se, though this year everything will be virtual. The month-long event will include numerous virtual check-ins and meetings. The objective of the hackathon is familiarize those new to programming with how to use GitHub, a hosting platform for software development.
