Join Facebook Developer Circles Vancouver as we kick off #Hacktoberfest 2019!
Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with DEV — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they've just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.
We will start off the evening with a quick rundown on Hacktoberfest, followed by an intro to open source and a short demo about contributing – what a documentation contribution looks like, what a code sample contribution looks like, and maybe even checkout some core code contributions. We will also provide a range of different projects that we think are good candidates for contributions and first-timers, so you can jump right in and get contributing! At the end, we will wrap up with a few lightning talks from the crowd to share about what they learned or open source projects they worked on.
Make sure to bring your own laptop! We will have mentors available to help you craft the ultimate Pull Request, or help get you started if you’ve never contributed before. Git mastery not required. Get started with DevC Vancouver and contribute PR to various Open Source projects, and light up your Github profile contribution graph!
• To qualify and win a free limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt, you must register and make four pull requests between October 1-31.
• Pull requests can be to any public repo on GitHub.
WIN OTHER FUN PRIZES DURING OUR EVENT:
• First pull request of the evening to receive a Facebook Developer Circle Vancouver branded t-shirt.
• Participants who volunteer to share what they learned/worked on at the end will receive a DevC branded mug.
