During this Hackathon, we’ve invited the maintainers of several open-source projects to propose fixes and features for those products that we’ll invite teams to work on. Project maintainers will provide problem statements and objectives, and work with teams collaboratively to help teams understand the respective code bases and help troubleshoot issues.
