Week 4: Forem Hacktoberfest Twitch Events Recap

This week the Forem team hosted four streams on Twitch during Hacktoberfest. Here is a recap of what we discussed!

Monday Oct 19th: Gratitude Stream.

Nick Taylor and I gave shoutouts to DEV community members who contributed to Forem last week. We had over 18 PRs merged from 12 different folks 🎉

Wednesday, Oct 21st: Walkthrough Wednesday.

Nick Taylor and I were joined by special guest Vaidehi Joshi, a Senior Software Engineer at DEV/Forem and creator of BaseCS.
Vaidehi answered questions about Forem’s backend architecture, her hobbies, side projects and more.

Thursday, Oct. 8th: Pair Programming with Marie.

DEV community member and Twitch streamer Marie Antons joined us on the stream to work on this open issue to add podcast validation.

Thanks to all our viewers who joined the streams and chatted with us this week!

We look forward to seeing you again next when we are joined by podcast producer and sound designer Levi Sharpe to talk about podcasting and what he does as a podcast producer at Forem.

We will also be joined by community member Shriyash Jalukar to pair on an open Forem issue.

Keep an eye on ThePracticalDev Twitch channel for our streaming schedule.

As we head into the final week of Hacktoberfest, I hope these upcoming streams help you submit those final PRs, learn more about open source, and get to know the Forem team and our community a bit more.
