Hacktoberfest is an annual event across all of GitHub which is meant to encourage developers to contribute to open source projects.
As a couple of guys amazed by open source projects, we decided to organise a meetup for this event in Poznań.
Whether it's your first step in open source or you already maintain your major project for several years, join us and let's hack for Hacktoberfest together.
The event consists of two main tracks. You are free to attend only one of them, or both - whichever you find more interesting!
A place to plop down with a laptop and write some code. Meet new people, ask for help, help others, talk about cool projects, share your knowledge, socialize! (Or don't. It's up to you - just have fun!)
Talks about Free Software, Open Source, programming, and IT in general.
You only need to bring a laptop with you - drinks and food are on us!
If you are an open source project maintainer, you can prepare a lightning talk (~5min) to promote your project.
We're looking for speakers to give talks at the event! If you:
have a topic in mind that's related to Free Software / Open Source, or software development in general
want to share your knowledge with others
want to put yourself out there
then feel free to contact us at [email protected]!
We welcome topics on every level, from speakers on all levels of experience. Even if you think your idea may be "too beginner", or you've never given a talk before - please contact us. We want the event to be welcoming to IT newcomers, so beginner-level topics are very welcome, and we'll do our best to help you prepare.
You should aim for your talk to fit in anywhere from 5 to 45 minutes.
We accept submissions until October 1st.
