Week 5: Forem Hacktoberfest Twitch Events Recap

This week, the Forem team wrapped up our Hacktoberfest streams on Twitch! Here is a recap of what we discussed...

Monday Oct 26th: Gratitude Stream.

Nick Taylor and I gave shoutouts to the DEV community members who contributed to Forem last week. We had over 15 PRs merged from 10 different folks 🥳

We will have one more Hacktoberfest Gratitude stream next Monday. Be sure to check it out!

Tuesday, Oct 27th: Forem and Hacktoberfest Helpdesk

Nick Taylor and I took over the Hacktoberfest Helpdesk to talk about accessibility and No Mouse Fridays. This open issue would prevent developers at Forem from using their mouse on Fridays so that they can better understand how important keyboard accessibility is on the site.

Friday, Oct 30th: Walkthrough Wednesday(Friday Edition) with Levi Sharpe.

Levi Sharpe, is a Senior Podcast Producer and Sound Designer at Forem.
Levi joined Nick Taylor and I to answer questions about podcasting and what he does as a podcast producer at Forem.

Thanks so much to all our viewers who joined the streams and chatted with us this week and the whole month of October! It was a blast connecting with you live in the name of open source 🎉

As we wrap up Hacktoberfest, we will be transitioning to one or two streams a week for the next few months. I hope to see you there!

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