Hacktoberfest is an annual challenge for the promotion of the open source community, where participation can also earn you a t-shirt.
Whether you’re a developer, student learning to code, event host, or company of any size, 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.
This year, SiligongValley is hosting a Hacktoberfest event where we will be able to bring together local developers of all levels to share in the community of open source.
Our agenda will cover:
Introduction to open source, #hacktoberfest, and GitHub PRs
* Pitch your repos
A chance for anyone to share the open source projects they are working on and request help from the community
* Hack together
Spend some time looking at the issues in open source repositories
* Create PRs
What to bring:
* If you maintain, support or follow an open source code base, it would be great if you could bring along some simple issues which could be shared.
* If you're new to programming or open source, bring your questions and we can help get you started.
Many thanks to Accelo who have have kindly offered their space for this event!
