Welcome to Hacktoberfest Los Angeles 2019

About this Event

Let's get together again to celebrate open source over food, drinks, and great company! Hacktoberfest is all about encouraging meaningful contributions to the open source ecosystem, and we would love to see you for the 2019 edition!

Come along to learn more about Open Source projects, commit code and network with fellow Open Source enthusiasts!

This event is especially for people who are underrepresented in tech and is open for all to attend. Please come if you are considering a career in tech, have started teaching yourself or are using tools online learning how to code. We will have mentors on hand to guide you through exercises.

Thanks to our hosts at Carbon Five located at 7th and Colorado in Santa Monica!

Special thanks to our volunteer mentors (Gregor, Angie, and Rouzbeh )

What is Hacktoberfest?

Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership 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.

Rules and Prizes

Hacktoberfest encourages more participation in the open source community, which grows bigger every year. Complete the 2019 challenge and earn a limited edition T-shirt.

First sign up on the Hacktoberfest site. If you open up four 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.
