Anna and Jamie will tell you all about Hacktoberfest, the great Free and Open Source causes you can contribute to over the month, and the cool swag you can get by contributing.
Anna and Jamie will also be bringing their own limited-edition stickers for those who manage to contribute to an Free or Open Source project during the day!
Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of Free and Open Source software during October, which is organised by Digital Ocean and sponsored by DEV, and aims to get more folks dipping their toes in contributing to Free and Open Source software, and showing everyone that there's more to a project than just code!
If you would like to contribute there is a lot of opportunity to do so. At the 2021 event Anna and Jamie will be promoting a lot of great opportunities - including (hopefully) a sponsor challenge. There are also numerous ways in which you can contribute to the DDD East Midlands website and blog. To find out more information about how to contribute to the DDD East Midlands pages read through this blog post by Marcus Noble.
