HacktoberFest is a month-long celebration of open-source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors toward 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.
Q&A PANEL Hear from some of the best open-source developers in town: - Brent Vatne (Software Developer @Expo) - David Luecke (Creator of Feathers.js) - Stephen Belanger (Node.js Dev @Elastic, Node contributor)
WORKSHOPS - Intro to Pull Requests PR - TBA - Best Practices in Open Source - TBA
HACK TIME Dive in with your first PRs. Not sure what to work on? We'll provide some ideas.
WIN A FREE T-SHIRT
To qualify for the official limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt, you must register and make four pull requests (PRs) between October 1-31 (in any time zone). PRs can be made to any public repo on GitHub, not only the ones with issues labeled Hacktoberfest. If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam or behavior not in line with the project's code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate. This year, the first 50,000 participants who successfully complete the challenge will earn a T-shirt.
VanJS is a meetup for web developers downtown Vancouver.
We usually meet every other month. Let us know if there's something you'd like to give a talk on!
We have a Code of Conduct that all participants must agree to follow at the event and we ask that you carry that participation into any events that follow that night:
VanJS is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, religion, or choice of editor.
We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form - this includes jokes made about the aforementioned qualities of personhood, even when made ironically.
If someone asks you to leave them alone or to end a conversation, do just that. The conversation is now over.
Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any VanJS presentation or sponsorship material.
Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event at the discretion of the organizers.
At each event either or both of Allen Pike or Angelina Fabbro will be present. If you have a problem that requires mediation, find one of them, they are happy to help.
