To hold a community hack day, software gurus from across the country and the Facebook Engineers are coming up at an event in Lahore on 5th November.
The 6-hour long event to be held this weekend is bringing tech-heads and software gurus from across Pakistan at one table. The event is mainly focused at the Facebook Community Challenges, and the engineers from the development team at Facebook themselves are to make appearances in this event. Adnan Majeed, a Pakistani national who is currently working as a software engineer at Facebook, will also be one of the veterans providing guidance to the participants about improving their entries for Community challenges hosted by Facebook.
The event can be used to find credible guidance about the Facebook Community Challenge from none other than the Facebook engineering team. Apart from this training, the event can make for good networking too as different like-minded techies will be coming over to one forum and collaborate.
The hack day is being hosted by Danish Rizwan who is currently serving as a Community Leader at the Facebook Developers Circle along with Usama Tauqeer of Aloo Clan. The Developer Circles from Facebook are local groups organized by the community members, allowing different tech developers to connect and collaborate with each other.
Facebook Community Challenge, on the other hand, is an open competition that asks users to build a technology solution using different Facebook products. Either the closed source technologies developed by Facebook like Login, Account Kit, Analytics and Messenger can be used to build these solutions or the open source technologies like React, Fresco and Litho can be employed to build new technologies.
The complete details about applying and eligibility of this competition can be read at the blogpost given at this link. And in order to remain updated about the details on the Lahore event, keep visiting the event’s Facebook page.
