Workshops

Track 1: HSL and their open data

Do you want to have an impact in the city you live in? Together with HSL, we are hosting a track where you get to learn what data HSL has to offer for developers to build solutions that affect them and their immediate living environment.

Track 2: codebar

We've been active in the local codebar community that helps people who belong to underrepresented groups in tech to learn programming and get into the industry. Their website and event management system is open source and during this track, you have an opportunity to work on improving that with the guidance of codebar organizers.

Track 3: Accessibility tools

At Futurice, we have people who care about accessibility. As part of our on-going work to improve our own work in building more accessible products and services, there are multiple open source tools being built to assist in that. Join this track to join the collaborative effort to make them better so we can all make accessible services in the future.

About Hacktoberfest

Hacktoberfest® is an initiative created by Digital Ocean in order to encourage contributions to open source. During October, if you sign up to the program and make 4 pull requests to public repositories in Github, you will earn yourself a t-shirt provided by Digital Ocean and DEV.

Hacktoberfest® is open to everyone in our global community. Whether you’re a developer, student learning to code, event host, or company of any size, you can help drive growth of open source and make positive contributions to an ever-growing community. All backgrounds and skill levels are encouraged to complete the challenge.
