Hacktoberfest is here, and we can help! - Oct. 26, 4pm

26 October 2017

Hey RITluggers!

We’re flying into Week 9 already, and October is almost over. Maybe you’re planning your costume, stocking up on candy, or trying to get your last few contributions in for Hacktoberfest! And this week, RITlug is here to help (with your hacks, not your candy).

Hacktoberfest Procrasti-fest

Every year, DigitalOcean and GitHub partner up for Hacktoberfest. The goal? Make four contributions to any open source project on GitHub in October. If you do it, DigitalOcean sends you free stickers and a t-shirt to thank you for your work!

October is coming up to an end fast, and we want to help you earn your free goodies. The meeting will be a hands-on, interactive workshop. Bring your favorite open source projects and laptops, and we’ll help you contribute and submit your pull request.

Don’t know of a project to work on? No worries! We have some projects ready to show if you aren’t sure what to work on.

Our meeting starts at 4:00pm on Friday, October 20th, in GOL-2650 (large DB lab).

tl;dr details

  • Day: Friday, Oct. 26th, 2017
  • Time: 4:00pm - 6:00pm
