- Hacktober Kick-Off!
The Norwegian PowerShell User Group will be hosting its first Hacktober Kick-Off this year, hopefully, something that will become a tradition! This is the first of several webinars and meetups we will be hosting this October. Besides introducing the concept and talking about open source, there will be a chance to discuss PowerShell projects, running demos, and asking for contributions. We scheduled an hour, but the core organizers will be present as long as people have something to share. 21:00 - Welcome Introduction to Hacktoberfest, what it is and how you can contribute. 21:15 - Open mic, PowerShell projects This is your chance to show off your PowerShell projects! Want to share any code, asks for opinions, show off modules? The floor is open, just take the stage! # About Hacktorberfest: 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. Can't make it to this online meetup?
