[Planning] FOSS Hack 4.0

Announcing FOSS Hack 4.0

We are excited to announce the 4th edition of FOSS Hack, moving further on our goal of evangelising FOSS projects.

FOSS Hack 4.0 aims to be way more engaging and inclusive, with no central iteration, but parallel hackathons happening all over the country. We are in discussions on how to execute this event at a larger scale paralelly, but a brief idea of what we’re planning is here.

Venues:

The hackathon will take place in multiple editions throughout. List of venues will be updated here.
We are expecting a minimum of 15 venues running the hackathon parallely, managed end to end by our FOSS Clubs, City Chapters and additional volunteer teams.
