Info Support joins Hacktoberfest

October 29 & 30

Happy Hacktoberfest everyone!

We are so excited to be participating in Hacktoberfest again this year. At Info Support, we believe in the power of collaboration and open-source software.

That’s why we’re contributing to some of the projects we use. We even actively maintain some of them! Help us design and implement new features, write documentation, or fix bugs. The hackathon is during the famous Hacktoberfest so you can use your contributions to get that awesome Hacktoberfest T-shirt!

New to open source? We will help you to get started with your first contribution.

What are we going to do?

We invite you to join us on 29 and 30 october Hacktoberfest at Info Support: An open source hackathon.

What are we going to do? We decide that together during the first hours of the hackathon from a prepared list of exciting features and potential bug fixes!

To give an example, last year we implemented dark mode in the Stryker html report, improved the developer experience of Maven and fixed some bugs in Dapr.

How to participate?

  1. Register for our hacktoberfest event on October 29 & 30
  2. Sign up on the official Hacktoberfest website with your GitHub or GitLab account

Do you want to start with contributing to open source before our Hacktoberfest Info Support event? Nice! Look for the ‘hacktoberfest’ topic on GitHub to know if a project is participating in Hacktoberfest

Are you new to open source?

No problem! On Friday morning Nico Jansen, it consultant @ Info Support and maintainer of Stryker will give a workshop “how do I start contributing to open source” and our Info Support open source community will help you get started with your first contribution.

What is Hacktoberfest

Hacktoberfest, in its 8th year, is a month-long celebration of open source software run by DigitalOcean.

It is a great opportunity for everyone, from seasoned developers to students and code newbies, from technical writers to UX designers, to contribute to open source communities and develop your skills.
