Open source is changing the world - one pull request at a time. We are Ashpot are helping to pioneer that change through Hacktoberfest 2020 Aba


Hacktoberfest —  by DigitalOcean in partnership with Dev & Intel — is a month-long celebration of open-source software. In this open-source festival, 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.

Hacktoberfest encourages participation in the open-source community, which grows bigger every year. When you complete the 2020 challenge, you earn a limited-edition T-shirt.

Hacktoberfest is open to everyone. Whether you’re new to development, a student, a long-time contributor, or simply an open source enthusiast, you can help drive the growth of open source and make positive contributions to an ever-growing community. All backgrounds and skill levels are encouraged to complete the challenge.

This year, we are at Ashpot decide to join the global celebration of open source software by hosting the Hacktoberfest event here in Aba. The event will be streamed live through Zoom. Most of the speakers will be connecting and speaking to us through live streaming, and an open-source workshop will still be held physically that day at our tech hub in Aba
