Tips for an engaging Hacktoberfest event? :)

I'm organizing Hacktoberfest for the local dev community. It's happening in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, and people here aren't open-sourcing their code at a large scale. So I'm looking for ideas to make Hacktoberfest appealing, as well as educational.

From the Hacktoberfests you attended, can you give me fun ideas to try out? 😋

Have you seen the event kit they have? It has some great pointers and tips that I would echo from doing events in the past. hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/eve...

yup, I checked those. I was rather curious about how people experienced Hacktoberfest in various communities.
Thank you for sharing your input 🤗

Git Concepts I Wish I Knew Years Ago

The most used technology by developers is not Javascript.

It's not Python or HTML.

It hardly even gets mentioned in interviews or listed as a pre-requisite for jobs.

I'm talking about Git and version control of course.
