Event FAQs

Hacktoberfest is an initiative by Github and DigitalOcean and it's all about contributing to open source projects. After submitting 5 contributions you'll get a limited edition Hacktoberfest 2018 T-Shirt. You can pick any project of your interest but all of the contributions must be accepted within October.

Anyone interested in Software Development. It doesn’t matter if these are your first steps towards Open Source or if you are experienced Software Architect maintaining several projects. For beginners, we’re going to show how to proceed with Git and GitHub and provide mentorship during the whole event. For experienced people, we can offer a comfortable place with snacks to commit and contribute.

You can contribute to any Open Source project you want. The official Hacktoberfest Getting Started section has a list of resources to find projects available to work on. Additionally, during the event we will introduce some well-known projects we can work on together.

By contributing to Open Source, you’re helping everyone in the community. Additionally, as a person, you will learn new skills, meet new people and become more valuable on the market. We have a chance to give what we took from Wikipedia!

All of the event staff speak English, Catalan and Spanish. Talks will be given in any of the three languages, based on the speaker's preference.
