Hacktoberfest 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 ones they've just discovered. No contribution is too small—bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating. Participants submit 5 pull requests to Github-hosted repositories
This kickoff event will feature an overview of HacktoberFest and how to participate presented by Erica Stanley.
