Description

Willkommen bei Hacktoberfest!

A meetup at Futurice Stuttgart:

  • Jan van Brügge / Futurice: Introduction to functional reactive programming with Cycle.js (and how I became a core contributor)
  • Jonas Schweizer / Laserhub: Why we trust open-source, almost never contributed and our plans for the future!
  • Food and drinks!

Hacktoberfest is an initiative created by Digital Ocean in order to encourage contributions to open source. At Futurice we know that open source runs the world we live in. We see that every day, as we craft digital services for all manner of different businesses and organisations. Many of the tools of our trade are open source, as is the bedrock for a lot of the critical digital infrastructure we depend on every day. We all want to see this great movement continue to flourish, and the best way to do that is contribute time and effort: fix a bug, write documentation, design a new feature, or just keep innovating and building your own project -- all these contributions are valuable.

Oh, and free stuff! Submit four quality pull requests during October and you get an exclusive Hacktoberfest T-shirt from Digital Ocean. For more information see the FAQ.

To help build awareness Futurice is hosting events at our offices across Europe. Anyone is welcome to join!

Please read our Events Code of Conduct (http://do.co/hacktoberconduct) before attending. Happy Hacking!
