Traditionally there are a lot of events happening in the Jenkins organization in Autumn. I would like to share some information about the upcoming hackathons.

Online Event: Hacktoberfest

As you probably know, there is an ongoing Hacktoberfest event. The Jenkins project is participating in it and everybody is welcome to contribute to Jenkins as a part of this event. The event lasts from October 01 to October 31, and you can can join it at any time.

See this blogpost for more information about Hacktoberfest in the Jenkins project.

Onsite Hackathons

Hacktoberfest is not the only event happening in the Jenkins community this month, there are also a number of upcoming on-site events:

All contributions during these in-person events qualify as Hacktoberfest contributions as well. :) More events will also be announced later in the year, e.g. we traditionally do a hackfest in Brussels after FOSDEM in February. Follow our developer mailing lists and social media to receive announcements.
