My Local Hack Day - BUILD 2021 Experience | Major Hacking League | Guild: Devscript Winter Of Code

Hey everyone! Here I am attending another awesome event organized by the Major League Hacking Community.

It was a lovely experience, full of energy! We(I along with my guild mates) came together every day and completed these super creative, crazy tasks and try to finish all of the challenges in the amount of time allotted.

There were many localhost workshops one of my favourite was Create a personal site with GitHub Pages. It was my first MLH event and it helped me to to know some new skills and technologies. My guild bagged the 5th position among other 100 guilds of MLH!. Team leaderboard each day gave us a sense of competency and that was quite good as it prepared us for next day with full enthusiasm and energy.

MLH Local Hack Day is a fantastic learning opportunity. It forces me to get out of my comfort zone and grow. It helped me to network with relevant people. It helped me to Showcase My Skills and It has been also a platform to Challenge myself.

All thanks to Major Hacking League for organizing such a fantastic event and Devscript Winter Of Code for letting me be a member and adding a little something from my part to this community! I hacked for 7 days straight and learnt a lot of new things. The event was very impactful, totally loved the challenges and not to forget the amazing stickers that each person will be rewarded with!
