In this session, we will be hacking on open source projects as part of Hacktoberfest.
Hacktoberfest is a global event open to every one aimed at promoting open source contributions during the month of October (like Oktoberfest), with the first 50,000 people to raise 5 pull requests receiving a free t-shirt.
We will start with an intro to Hacktoberfest as well as a beginners guide to contributing, after that we will spend a few hours hacking away and raising pull requests.
Make sure to bring along laptops and set up a GitHub account (http://github.com) and sign up to Hacktoberfest (https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/sign_up/register), and as always there will be pizza, beer and good conversation
We are an independent technology company, specialising in building and running the systems that organisations count on to deliver their core services.
