Celebrate Hacktoberfest’s 5th year: Amsterdam edition

Join us on October 2, 2018 @ the GitHub office in Amsterdam

Hacktoberfest Amsterdam

Join us at the GitHub office in Amsterdam for Hacktoberfest’s 5th anniversary! On Tuesday, October 2, from 19:00 to 22:00, we’re celebrating with food, drinks, learning, and great company.

Learn how to contribute to open source from local maintainers, get up to speed on how GitHub works, and make some pull requests. The evening will begin with presentations from local open source maintainers, an introduction to how open source works, and how you can contribute. Then we’ll help new and experienced folks get down to business. Don’t worry—we’ll have plenty of snacks and stickers to help fuel your ideas.

New to open source? We’ll help you along the way. Already an experienced contributor? Come and hack on your favorite project, and help mentor folks! No contribution is too small, and we’ll have lots of help on hand, including @DEGoodmanWilson (GitHub) and @floord (Phusion).

Register now

Date: Tuesday, October 2
Time: 19:00 – 22:00
Address: Spaces Vijzelstraat, Vijzelstraat 68-72, 1017 HL Amsterdam
