    Part of the 2019 Winter Is Here Series πŸ”₯ Cool! πŸ™‚Read on...the usual spiel follows. Are you a beginner at using Node.js and/or JavaScript? Are you wanting a refresher? Are you looking to level up your knowledge? We don't have set classes, and as such it is considered a self study program. The NodeSchool organization has a lot of workshops for you to learn from, and we help out along the way, but that doesn't mean you have to do the workshops, we are a diverse group of people learning and growing together. Bring your laptops and, if you can, have Node.js installed before you arrive. It's time for another session of learning! We have regular mentors to help everyone learn. But we can't ever have too many people who want to help others learn, right?! We promise that by the end of the session you'll know enough to help the person sitting next to you learn too πŸ’ͺ RSVP "yes" and come learn and/or help others learn Node.js and/or JavaScript over a casual Saturday afternoon!

Cool! πŸ™‚ Read on...the usual spiel doesn't follow. HACKTOBERFEST 2019 HacktoberFest 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 β€” 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. AGENDA Q&A PANEL Hear from some of the best open-source developers in town: - Brent Vatne (Software Developer @Expo) - David Luecke (Creator of Feathers.js) - Stephen Belanger (Node.js Dev @Elastic, Node contributor) WORKSHOPS - Intro to Pull Requests PR - TBA - Best Practices in Open Source - TBA Interested in doing a workshop? Chime in at https://github.com/VanJS/meetup/issues/29 HACK TIME Dive in with your first PRs. Not sure what to work on? We'll provide some ideas. WIN A FREE T-SHIRT To qualify for the official limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt, you must register and make four pull requests (PRs) between October 1-31 (in any time zone). PRs can be made to any public repo on GitHub, not only the ones with issues labeled Hacktoberfest. If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam or behavior not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate. This year, the first 50,000 participants who successfully complete the challenge will earn a T-shirt. Bring a laptop & Happy Hacking!

    A new session for the 2019 Fall is Here Series 🍁 In open source, we create with open and distributed collaboration between peers. Contributors are the awesome people who make code or non-code contributions to a project! We'd like to make it easier for people to do this. ## Who is this for? Whether or not you have contributed to an open source project, this is for you. Existing contributors will share practices of getting started contributing in open source. People who want to get started are coming to learn. Everyone will work on their open source stuff in a community setting and help other people do so too πŸ’› ## Prepare Bring your laptops and, if you can, have a Github account with a complete profile (photo, tagline) ready to go before you arrive. It's time for another session of learning! ## Mentors We have ongoing mentors to help everyone learn. But we can't ever have too many people who want to help others learn, right?! So we always welcome new mentors. ## The Plan * We're working through a curriculum to get you from "What is Github?" to publishing an open source npm module πŸš€πŸ“¦πŸš€ * We'll walk through two different projects (https://github.com/nodejs and https://github.com/nodeschool workshoppers) * We'll discuss open source culture * We'll bring some issues we plan to work on. You can work on those with us * We'll help maintainers respond to issues and requests * We'll do our typical open source stuff and help people join in too ## See you soon! If you want to learn and/or help others learn how to contribute to open source over a casual Saturday morning, RSVP yes! πŸ’–βœ’οΈπŸ–‹βœ’οΈπŸ–‹βœ’οΈπŸ–‹βœ’οΈπŸ–‹βœ’οΈπŸ–‹βœ’οΈπŸ–‹βœ’οΈπŸ–‹βœ’οΈπŸ–‹βœ’οΈπŸ–‹βœ’οΈπŸ–‹βœ’οΈπŸ–‹πŸ’–
