Hacktoberfest comes to Dublin! RyanairLabs, DigitalOcean and DEV are delighted to sponsor this exciting event. To share our passion for Open Source we are hosting a full day workshop on Open Source projects.

The workshop is completely free, Whether you’re a developer or a student learning to code you can help drive growth of Open Source and make positive contributions to an ever-growing community. All backgrounds and skill levels are encouraged to complete the challenge.. Remember to bring your laptop to the event.
