Event description
Hacktoberfest is an annual event across all of GitHub which is meant to encourage developers to contribute to open source projects.

About this Event

Hacktoberfest encourages developers to participate and work on the open-source (FOSS) in the month of October. This is the avenue wherein developers can pick and choose the open-source they want to contribute to on GitHub and submit PR’s that would affect the open-source project in a meaningful way. It could be as simple as authoring a README file on the open-source projects that one used earlier and struggled while working with it. This can be considered the time where one takes time and gives back something meaningful to the Open Source community. Additional information on the details of what is the Hacktoberfest Challenge can be got from https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/

An initial list of what we will be working on?

We are composing a list of open source projects that we intend to share. This list is foundationally based on our personal/professional interests and the impact it would have on the open-source community at large. Please feel free to add/indicate other projects in the open-source arena that we all as a community could contribute to. We can then start to organize ourselves into smaller groups (or pairs) organically based on where individuals would like to contribute.

We will keep this space updated with the list of projects that we want to contribute to.

NOTE: Please make sure to bring:-

1. Valid Govt. ID (or college ID) to enter the campus

2. Laptop

3. Charger

We can also accommodate attendees with no laptop!
