I attended an event “Unicorns of Pune” which was organized by MCCIA.
There are total 3 Unicorns in Pune.
Unicorns are those who have reached the $1 billion mark in their business. In this series of events I was able to interact with inspiring folks in Pune, who have a lot of insights to share about different communities, startups, entrepreneurship.

Hacktoberfest webinar

Hacktoberfest is back for the 6th year
I’ve gotten Hacktoberfest shirts the past two years, and I wear them with pride.

Hacktoberfest is a month long celebration of open source software. It was started by Digital Ocean in 2014.

I organized and hosted a Hacktoberfest webinar for Developers who have never contributed to OSS (Open Source Software).
Webinar was for Developers who have never done open source contribution, who doesn’t know where to get started.
The main motive of organizing this webinar to help Developers to start their opensource journey.

In webinar I explained about the OSS in a beginner friendly manner.
I explained in detail about what is Hacktoberfest, why Developers should contribute to OSS, I guided them through hands-on step by step process of how to open a pull request and contribute to OSS through Hacktoberfest.
I also explained about how one can claim swags from different companies by opening a pull request during Hacktoberfest.
At the end of webinar we had a Q&A session, where I cleared all the doubts of attendees.
Webinar was attended by Developers from different cities of India.

At the end of webinar everyone were happy and every attendee signed up for GitHub account, opened more than 4 Pull Request and started their open source journey.
I created a GitHub Repo ( beginner friendly ) for all the attendees, so that they can contribute and start their open source journey.
