On 19th of January, 2019, a workshop titled “Build and Deploy your First Website” was conducted. The workshop was led by Harshil Agrawal. The content for the workshop was provided by Major League Hacking (MLH), a community first, mission driven organization, that support student hackathons and encourages student communities to grow. The workshop started by giving a brief introduction about HTML and CSS. The attendees were asked to do a check-in so that the workshop content and other resources could be shared with them. Before starting to cod the attendees were shown the website that they would get to build.
Harshil is a web and mobile developer and a machine learning enthusiast. He enjoys talking about tech and encourages others to learn to code. He conducts various events and workshops revolving around ML, web and mobile dev.
I got an opportunity to learn and teach Machine Learning. I was selected as a MLCC facilitator to help people get started with Machine Learning. We organized a event at Navrachana University, open for all. We talked about machine learning, it’s application, and covered the basic topics like gradient descent, loss functions and framing. I gave a talk on tensorflow.js. I also conducted a hands-on workshop on tensorflow.js, which gave an opportunity to the attendees to build a machine learning web app. We later shared resources with the them and encouraged them to get started with machine learning.
Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open source software run by DigitalOcean in partnership with GitHub and Twilio. Hacktoberfest is open to everyone in our global community! Under this initiative I conducted a workshop in my college. During this event we talked about Open Source. The attendees got to know about the benefits of contributing to open source. We also had a hands-on workshop on Git, which gave an opportunity for the students to learn about how to contribute to open source projects. The students were then encouraged to send at least 3 PR.
