Code for Pakistan in collaboration with Habib University is having an Open Source Day for Women in Karachi. OSDW is a call to all women with an educational background in Computer Science to come and get started on Open Source Projects and get connected to mentors in the tech industry.
Open source is not just about making your source code, blueprints, designs or content available in the public domain or selecting the most appropriate license. Although this forms the foundation of any open source solution, it offers opportunities that span far beyond these formalities. Being open source is also about the community, growth, and impact and this indisputably makes business sense. Open source allows a community of developers to contribute to your technology, combining both knowledge and expertise from a diverse pool of contributors. Open source creates a knowledge base that can be used to develop other projects thus creating a generation of open source public goods. Open Source allows others to adopt the technologies, improve upon it, and build a virtuous cycle of learning for the community at large.
Our speakers will inspire you to kick start your careers in computer science and be entrepreneurial. So gear up to learn, connect with mentors and be inspired!
Participation in the Workshop is FREE, but while we’d love to include everyone, space and logistical constraints mean that admission is open only to those accepted from the pool of applicants. So apply now before space runs out! Application Deadline: Dec 27, 2016.
