Needs a location
Participating in Hacktoberfest, or want to participate? This will be a relaxed, free-form study night that will let you work on pull requests or pair with others while sharing food, drinks, and great company. Commit your first PR to an open source project!
We'll be leading a small intro to submitting a PR on GitHub, for those who have never submitted one before; most of the event will be a relaxed study space, where you can set your own pace and ask others for help if needed. We'll offer small prizes to anyone who submits a PR during the event.
Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with GitHub and DEV — 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.
Can't make it to this event? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Connect with other Hacktoberfest participants by using the hashtag, #hacktoberfest. Sign up to participate today: https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/
Rules and Prizes
First sign up on the Hacktoberfest site. If you open up five pull requests between October 1 and October 31, you'll win a free, limited edition Hacktoberfest T-shirt. (Pull requests do not have to be merged and accepted; as long as they've been opened between the very start of October 1 and the very end of October 31, they count towards a free T-shirt.)
Come prepared with:
* IDE of your choice - we like Visual Studio Code
* Git/GitHub or GitLab. If you don't know git, we'll teach you!
