Event Description

Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with Dev & Intel — 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.

Hacktoberfest MozNUV: We, the students of MozNUV's Campus Club, are proud to organize Hacktoberfest where we are going to learn about Open-Source, How to contribute and have fun at the same time with mini-events! We are also going to have a session on an Open-Source technology where experienced contributors will inspire us with their journey about contributing to Open-Source. Also, we have amazing mentors who will guide us throughout the event. This event going to be held on 11th October 2020 and from 11 am Onwards!
