Welcome to the September 2021 edition of the EddieHub Newsletter!
September is often associated with the start of new things: the seasons are changing, and for many it represents "back to school". What does September mean to you? Are you starting a new path in your career or studies? Have you set yourself a challenge to learn something new? It might even be preparing yourself for a month-long participation in Hacktoberfest! If you haven't heard about Hacktoberfest then take a look below.
For me, September has marked the return of in-person events (since February 2020), as I attended and spoke at the CityJS/HalfStack conference in London.

If you're in the IT industry, then HackConf is right for you! Two days of inspiration and learning await you on the 22-23rd of October at HackConf 2021 Online edition. There will be great talks and hands-on workshops.
Hack this Fall Season 2: 22 to 24 October 2021 A 48 hour hackathon aimed to promote hackers and nurture their ideas. Their motto is to involve more beginner hackers and support everyone to solve the shared problems of our society. In the lead up to the event look out for Eddie Jaoude's talk on the 27th September.
Here is Xico and Ginja in the background! They belong to Sara Jaoude's parents and became Eddie and Sara's faithful companions for the three months they spent in Portugal. Xico will allow anyone into the house...but letting them leave is a different story. Ginja's favorite pastime is eating - especially hand fed treats!
