Twin Cities 2018Hacktoberfest

The mission:

Create an inclusive environment that invites everyone -- regardless of skill level -- to contribute to open source software.

Everyone can learn to create amazing things on the internet, but that first step into a new world can be the hardest and if it's a bad experience some may be turned off of it -- that's why we want to guide those who could use a helping hand.

What we will do:

Those who participate will create a section of this webpage -- a full screen -- to tell your story.

How we'll do it:

We will be available throughout the month of October to help anyone create a section of this website -- for free and regardless of skill level. You'll be getting a taste of every aspect of the creation process from concept creation to final implementation -- and in the end you'll be able to see your section along with everyone elses on this website!

Details and how to's will be available shortly!


Details will be coming before the end of September -- but you can shoot me an email at if you would like to schedule a 1:1, small or large group session or even just to help out!
