If it's October, it's Hacktoberfest! Let's celebrate Open Source over food, drinks, learning, and great company!

Hacktoberfest is a global event that lasts for the entire month of October each year. Developers - beginners and seniors alike - gather to contribute together to Open Source projects and win fun T-shirts and stickers at the end.

This year, we're planning a series of 3 Hacktoberfest events, so that everyone has the time to get introduced to Open Source, find a project to contribute to and complete 4 pull requests until the end of the month, to qualify for a limited edition T-shirt by Hacktoberfest organizers (Digital Ocean and DEV).

Here's the timeline:

- 🥨Event #1: Meet Open Source and Git - October 1st;
- 🍟Event #2: Work on your PRs - October 15th;
- 🍩Event #3: Follow-up & showcase time - October 29th;

On October 1st, we're kicking off Hacktoberfest with an introductory meeting on what the event means, what is Open Source and how to use Git. This first event is ideal for you if you haven't contributed before or you haven't taken part in Hacktoberfest. What should you expect?

- 🍻BEER & all kinds of pretzels 🥨
- 19:00 - 19:15: Intro + welcoming everyone;
- 19:15 - 19:30: Hacktoberfest concept + trivia;
- 19:30 - 20:30: Basics of Open Source and Git: how to open and manage issues on GitHub;
- 20:30 - 21:00: Commit before the GitCommit.


- Pull requests can be made in any GitHub-hosted repositories/projects, after you register on the Hacktoberfest website https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/ (registrations open October 1st through October 31st).
- We are going to provide continuous support and resources in October via the Fullstack Cluj Discord channel here -> https://discord.gg/t6DV3sW
- 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 others they've just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.
