The focus of the session will be on using GitHub to explore and contribute to open source and is not limited to R users. Also note that there is a huge variety of projects available, many not involving coding at all (ie collaborative writing projects, training material development). So feel free to attend if your just curious about open source in general.
For every following tuesday evening of October, we’ve booked a room to explore Hacktoberfest projects together! The room is booked on the following dates:

Come to as many sessions as you like, stay as long as you can, bring your friends! If anyone get’s stuck there’ll be others around to help. There’ll also be at least one member of the RSE team at each session to help with questions and demystifying any open source jargon.
By the end hopefully you’ll have had an opportunity to learn more about collaboration, play around with something new and managed to contribute and get the t-shirt to prove it!
