Have you always wanted to contribute to #opensource but didn't know how to start?

We understand that contributing to an established project or creating your own can be difficult. Hackify is an #opensource developer event where we get together, contribute to established projects and share and listen to experiences from the #opensource community.

Join us for an evening to fix that bug or propose a new feature for your favourite library. We will walk you through the process, pair program a solution with you and by the end submit a pull-request.

If you don't have a favourite library, we will have a list of issues (tagged with #upforgrabs) that the maintainers of popular libraries think are relatively easy to start with. 

 

Who it is for?

Developers who have or always wanted to contribute to the #opensource community.

 

What can be expected?

An evening of pair-programming and contributing to the community. We will have guest speakers to talk to you about their experiences with #opensource community. 

 

What to bring?

A laptop and a community spirit. We'll provide everything else (including snacks and refreshments).
