It’s Hacktoberfest 2016! Let’s celebrate open source!
To bring the birmingham open source community together, intro eachother to our open source projects and contribute to the community.
We'll be kicking off at 18:30 with an introduction and a basic guide on GitHub.
We'll follow up by splitting into groups and finding projects to work on based on everyones interests.
We will be running some workshops during the evening introducing people to Github for those who have never used version control before.
Hacktoberfest—brought to you by DigitalOcean and GitHub—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 ones they've just discovered. No contribution is too small—bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.
Can’t make it to this event? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Sign up to participate today.
