It's Hacktoberfest 2019! Let's celebrate open source over food, drinks, learning, and great company! The Organizer-Team of Frontend Rhein-Neckar thought it was a great idea to support this global event.. so here we go! :-)

Notice: The main language for this Meetup will be English.

Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with DEV — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors toward 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 event? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Sign up to participate today at https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com.

💫 About the talk

In this talk I talk about open source as a concept, how I got involved in open source and how it changed my life. I tell the story from my own perspective highlighting the good and bad sides of open source but also about how I was able to turn our business into an open source company that contributes to, learns from and adopts with the open source community.

If you are an open source contributor or your company is using open source technologies, this session will be a perfect for you! I will shed light on the dark corners and pains in open source, but I also highlight the financial benefits, market leadership and satisfied customers.

👉 Network

It is important that you have fun, learn something new and just try things you don't have time for from your regular 9 to 5 schedule! So please bring your notebooks and projects with you! Of course there will still be the opportunity to chat about all other things, to network and to make new contacts!
