Brunei Geek Meet : Hacktoberfest Open Hack Night

 

 

It is the month of October and Hacktoberfest returns yet again. If you’re not aware of what Hacktoberfest is, it is month-long celebration of open source software run by DigitalOcean in partnership with GitHub and Twilio.

  • It is open to anybody and everybody all over the world
  • It runs for the entire month of July
  • And it aims to give back to open source
  • One way they do this is to encourage people to create 5 quality pull requests to any public Github repository and this year they will be giving away free T-shirts for all those who have completed it 🎉 (This year they have 50,000 compared to 30,000 last year)

We ran a Brunei Geek Meet last night where we covered an overview of making a Github pull request and shared some tips to look for issues

I managed to continue to work on Insomnia

This being the second year of participating in Hacktoberfest, I’m going to try look at tools I use or projects/people that have added value to me in some form over the many years of the Internet. So I’ll be continuing my hunt 👀 and hope you guys have a great Hactoberfest!

Brunei Petrol Station Map / Minyak Mana?

GDG held their DevFest Season 2016 and I was helping to facilitate the hackathon that they had. We tried to focus on some social good apps and the winner was one trying to map open burning areas with crowd soured reporting while the runner up had to do with image processing via a phone to recognise sign language gestures.

I also managed to squeak some time to pull off a hack of my own by mapping the Shell Petrol/Gas stations in Brunei
