Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open source software conducted by DigitalOcean in partnership with GitHub. The aim is to support open source and earn a limited edition T-shirt. Center
for Open Source, IIIT-H is hosting an in-person meetup at IIIT-H on 29th October, from 10 am - 5 pm, to gather all free and open source enthusiasts from the city to contribute to open source projects together.
In this meetup, we’ll take a beginner friendly session on Git and GitHub, tell you about GSoC, and provide you with guidance to participate in 2018. We’ll then let you pair up with other attendees, pick your projects and start contributing. We will have mentors present throughout the venue, to guide you with the technology and making the contributions. The most active contributors, who make at least 4 PR’s merged, will receive T-shirts sponsored by Digital Ocean.
