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.
This year we are organizing Hacktoberfest 2020 Karachi. We will let you know about the power of open source and that how you can contribute to open source. Diana Rodriguez from VONAGE will be also joining us as a guest speaker and will have a tech talk on open source. Come, join us and HACK this Hacktober!
