It is a participant-oriented meeting where the attendees choose a topic or an agenda and discuss the particular agenda. There is an exchange of ideas and opinions. At the Field Day, most of the events will be talks and discussions conducted by the attendees.
We welcome student leaders and members of tech communities across Sri Lanka. Most of the attendees will be undergrad students.
This Field Day is specifically for Sri Lanka, but keep an eye on githubfieldday.com for a Field Day in your area.
Field Day is free to attend!
Knowing about GitHub is always a great thing. However, this event is not a technical conference. It's about communities, students and networking. We don't ask for your CV :)
You will receive an application update soon after the registration deadline. If you are selected, you will receive all the details about venue, accomodation and travel options.
Yes! We’ll be providing you with a light breakfast and meals. We won't leave you hungry! There will be some cool swags as well.
