Indeed's Open Source Program Office is excited to be a Hacktoberfest 2020 Community Partner! Indeed is committed to supporting the open source community and taking a more active role.
We work with many organizations throughout the year, and Indeed's Open Source group is happy to be a community partner of Hacktoberfest in 2020.
A core pillar of Indeed's program is contributing to open source sustainability. We accomplish this through event sponsorships, open source organization sponsorships, and increased contributions to the open source ecosystem. Read more about how Indeed doubled employee contributions from Hacktoberfest 2018 to 2019 in this case study.
Earlier this year at DevRelCon Earth, Alison Yu, Indeed's Open Source community manager, talked about how we were able to more than double employee contributions from Hacktoberfest 2018 to 2019. You can watch her talk below:
