October is always a special time for open source enthusiasts, open source beginners, and for us at WebMob Technologies as well.
Hacktoberfest 2018 - the 5th annual virtual hackathon oriented towards Open Source software. Which takes place throughout the month of October every year , has turned into an exciting time of the year for open source software. It is a month-long celebration of open source software sponsored by GitHub, DigitalOcean, and Twilio. DigitalOcean started Hacktoberfest with a simple mission in mind: to give back to the open source community that had given us and many others so much. Five years later, more than 100,000 developers from 120 nations have participated, contributing about 400,000 pull requests to almost 100,000 repositories.
Throughout the previous five years, Hacktoberfest has raised awareness and lowered the barrier for participation and collaboration on open source projects. And this year WebMob Technologies were right on their spot to make most out of this amazing month long fest of Open Source Software with “Hacktoberfest 2018-The Open Hack Day” at WebMob Tech. We were pleased to be part of this and our team had an astonishing experience of Hacktoberfest 2018 and contributing to the Open Source Community.

At WebMob Technologies, we never miss out an opportunity like this to give our team some learning experience. “Hacktoberfest 2018-The Open Hack Day” is a coding event arranged by WebMob Technologies for the rookies of technology development services.

We had a great time this year, looking forward to the next year and we will be back with such amazing events to celebrate this Open Source fest.
