Location: University of Guyana, Computer Sci, Lab E38.
Hacktoberfest 2019 – Georgetown is organised by Facebook Developer Circle Georgetown in collaboration with its local community partners such as Trifinity Solutions, Firelinkx, the Ministry of Public Telecommunications, Future Guyana Project, University of Guyana – Computer Science Department and Social Enterprise and Administration Initiatives.
Join us at the University of Guyana for Hacktoberfest on Tuesday the 15th of October 2019 at 5 pm sharp at the Computer Science Lab. Learn how to use and contribute to Open Source Software. Lots to learn and eat.
This event was organized with the intention to: increase awareness of open source in your community, enjoy contributing to open source in a social setting, meet project owners, maintainers, contributors, and community members in person, and learn about the open-source ecosystem, from how to start an open-source project to marketing your project, sustaining growth, and troubleshooting and maintenance.
Our instructor will be Mr.Narendra Nauth, a full-stack developer with over 10 years of experience in the computing industries building apps, websites, and games.
We are inviting the public to participate with us as we are looking to teach and develop lightweight skills to use the open-source communities. These platforms are important for anyone who wants to get into coding since programming requires a collaborative environment building and creating any software.
Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with DEV — 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.
