About this Event

It's Hacktoberfest 2019! Let's celebrate open source over food, drinks, and great company! Bring your laptop and power cord. Please read our event's Code of Conduct before attending. Happy hacking!

Agenda

6:00-6:20P - Sign-in and snag food

6:20-7:00P - Intro ceremonies (house rules, code of conduct, FAQ, and more) and sharing open source projects you're working on (keep it short!)

7:00P-9:30P - Let's open some pull requests!

What's Hacktoberfest?

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.

New Developers?

If you're a newer developer and would like help learning how to contribute, please ask for help from somebody in a blue AutoGravity shirt! When we first break out into open coding, we'll be hosting a small meeting for new developers on how they can get involved.

Not a coder?

There are plenty of projects on GitHub that could use contributions via design, copy, and even high-level organizational decisions. Open source isn't just about code, and this event is simply about open source. Feel free to join us.

Rules and Prizes

First, sign up on the Hacktoberfest site at https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com. To qualify for the official limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt, you must register and make four pull requests between October 1-31. Pull requests can be to any public repo on GitHub, not just the ones with issues labeled Hacktoberfest. If a maintainer reports your pull request as invalid or behavior not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate.

Connect with other Hacktoberfest participants by using #hacktoberfest on your social media platform of choice.

New to DigitalOcean? Receive USD $50 in infrastructure credit at https://do.co/hacktoberfest50.

Specific to this event, Acorns will be offering up product gift cards to encourage participation. The rules surrounding earning the prizes will be presented at the event!
