London .NET Developers is hosting another full day Humanitarian Toolbox Hackathon on Saturday, Dec 10th, 2016 from 8:30am – 4:30pm.
Humanitarian Toolbox’s (HTbox) mission is to connect IT or developer resources to charity organizations that are in need of these people’s expertise. The HTbox uses Github as a public repo for its remote teams to work on the projects. Regardless of your experience in open source or whether you are or want to be a coder, tester, designer, or something else, your skills can save lives.
The project we will be working on for this event is the allReady application. We are asking for volunteer developers to help work on bug fixes or features for the application.
The allReady application has been built with the latest patterns and best practices using ASP.Net core. The good thing here while you are learning ASP.Net Core you will be helping a good cause.
We provide a quick demo on git on how to fetch and commit the code from the project GitHub.
The goal is to complete as many issues as possible and submit a pull request back to the project repo by the end of the event.
