BC Hacktoberfest

A month-long open source competition for students in British Columbia, hosted by StartupStorm, and inspired by Hacktoberfest.


How does this work?

Take some time this month to get involved with open source development on GitHub - as you make more contributions to external projects, you and your school's score will increase in the leaderboard below.

Leaderboard will be live on October 1st.

What if I'm new to open source?

No problem! Create a GitHub account and follow the official open source guide.

We will also be hosting a series of workshops in October to help you get started with open source development.
