I am so happy and proud to announce that Our Tech Community (OTC) is two years old today! What a journey it has been! We all have learnt and laughed a lot.
We have conducted so many events in two years:
- OTC CatchUp: We have been conducting CatchUps weekly for 63 consecutive weeks at this point, with an average of 7.65 hours per session. This implies that we have had approximately 500 hours of project showcases, technical discussions, laughs and friendly interactions. We have written summaries for all our sessions as well!
- Project Showcase && Community Review: We partnered with GDSC TSEC and CSI TSEC to conduct a project showcasing session. It had a lot of discussions about the technologies used, ways to present projects, pros and cons of the presented projects, etc. (Summary, Date: 23/01/2022)
- Hacktoberfest 2021: We partnered with GDSC TSEC and TSEC CodeCell to conduct three sessions related to Git and GitHub.
- Hacktoberfest 2020: We conducted a session demonstrating opening Pull Requests (PRs) and the nuances and scenarios that are involved while opening PRs. (YouTube video)
Almost all of these two years at OTC have been full of fun, hard work, growth, learning and friendships. This would not have been possible without Dheeraj, Darshan and Kartik, OTC's Admins, who have put in hours and hours of their time and effort into the community. Thank you! I am especially thankful to all the members of OTC and all the people who attend our sessions, because without you all attending, none of our sessions would have been successful.
Our goal is to keep the community and its sessions inclusive and Technology-focused. That is what we have done and that is what we will continue to do.
Moving forward, our plans are to continue OTC CatchUp, start 'OTC Discussion', start a mailing list and start offline meetups once the COVID-19 pandemic subsides. I hope you all will be a part of OTC and its upcoming activities!
