Hacktoberfest 2020 x AND Digital

This event has already taken place. Have a look at our upcoming events to see what’s coming up.

Hacktoberfest 2020 - brought to you by DigitalOcean, in partnership with Dev and Intel - is a month-long celebration of open-source software.

As part of this celebration, AND Digital are running sessions online that are open to all, regardless of previous experience levels.

For beginners, we’ll be sharing how to start with Git and Github, as well as information on how to get support during Hacktoberfest.

For more experienced members of the community, we will invite maintainers to guide would-be contributors, and offer contributors the opportunity to give back to projects.

No contribution is too small - bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

In this session we will cover:

  • Git fundamentals
  • Github introduction with Niall Grant, maintainer and core contributor to Sceptre
  • Being an open-source developer with Christos Matskas, Senior Programme Manager and Developer Advocate at Microsoft
