In the spirit of open source and Hacktoberfest we come together to work on open source software, to give back to the community. This is all about encouraging meaningful contributions to the open source ecosystem, for beginners and veterans alike. We will organize a place to work with internet access, and provide guidance to help you contribute to open source.
The event starts between 17:30-18:30, the rest of the agenda will be announced soon.
Impact Hub Colab, Loft Corner, 4th floor
To get a shirt, you must make five pull requests (PRs) between October 1–31 in any timezone. PRs can be to any public repo on GitHub, not just the ones highlighted. The PR must contain commits you made yourself. PRs reported by maintainers as spam or that are automated will be marked as invalid and won't count towards the shirt. This year, the first 50,000 of you can earn a T-shirt (compared with 30,000 in 2017).
Hacktoberfest guiding values:
* Everyone is welcome
* Quantity is fun, quality is key
* Short term actions, long term impact
