Open Source Day at GHC gives attendees from around the world the chance to learn how to contribute to the open source community. Over 200 participants from diverse backgrounds, skills, and experience levels will be coding for humanitarian causes in a dynamic, collaborative environment.

You will be guided by experienced mentors from various organizations throughout the course of the day. You will also have the opportunity to network, learn, and work closely with your fellow participants, project leads, and visionaries from across the tech industry. Along with some serious coding, you also get to indulge in a bit of fun as well.

We will commence Open Source Day with an introduction to the organizations, projects, and a quick overview of the of the day. Participants will then disperse to join their teams and mentors to begin work on their projects. We will reconvene at the end of the day to demo the projects, share our learnings, and celebrate the spirit of Open Source Day!
