A month-long fun virtual coding festival event to celebrate open source contributions presented by Digital Ocean, Intel, and Dev. HacktoberFest is the easiest way to get into open source and stay there as more unleashes.
Open to everyone in the global community, whether you're already a developer, a newbie starting out to code, event host, or a company of any size, you can help drive the growth of open source and make positive contributions to an ever-growing community, all throughout the month of October, from the 1st to the 31st.
We at DSC BVP Pune, plan on conducting various sessions/webinars soon for the same. We have the best of speakers lined up who will navigate us not only through the intricacies of OSS and help guide on how to raise good issues and creating good pull requests, but also on how to get started with Github and everything necessary.
So, what are you waiting for? Join us on this journey by RSVPing now.
