Summer of Code


6 years ago | 1 min read

Summer of Code is a summer program to help Pakistani developers learn trending frameworks so they can write cool projects they want to make, contribute to open source projects, or work on industrial projects.

The Goal

The goal of the program is to free our industry from outdated tech stack and legacy frameworks. The aim is to create some seed experts who can then go back to their universities and companies and further teach their colleagues.

Format

The program is very high-paced and hands-on. Which is why the participants are hand-picked. The environment is something like a couple of friends hacking together.
