This event will be a kickoff event for the Hacktoberfest! Please check out the meetup page for more. Here is a tl;dr: Hacktoberfest® is open to everyone in our global community. Whether you’re a developer, student learning to code: you can help drive growth of open source and make positive contributions to an ever-growing community. All backgrounds and skill levels are encouraged to complete the challenge. We want to use the Meetup to gather ideas and give you a chance to find other people to work with. This event might be followed by another one on the weekend (more about that on Tuesday).
