Why Local Hack Day?

My Story of Participation

The other day I woke up thinking that I wanted to have a collaborative friend who would like to code with me. In the search of that, I joined a lot of discord servers that were made by coding enthusiasts. From there — just one day before LHD was going to start— I found about Local Hack Day. At that time I didn’t even know what was a hackathon. Although I was a bit enthusiastic about coding and therefore, I joined it.

What are the Features of Local Hack Day?

  • It’s compatible with a range of people.
  • Through local hack day, you get a sense of accountability and I believe accountability could lead anyone in the right direction anything.
  • They have leaderboard updates every single day, to return the enthusiasm to everyone.
  • It has guilds (group) formed from the whole community. And this guild helps every member of the guild to improve.

I am a multi-passionate creator. I create content based on coding, notion, my journey, psychology, literature, and entertainment.
