Hacktoberfest 2019 Meetup β€” DigitalOcean, JAMstack, & Everything Else!

We, TheDevCouple team, celebrate open source by arranging a number of interactive conferences and meetups every year. Meetups like these are opportunities for developers to meet, interact and network with the speakers and other developers. With the month of October ongoing, it was time for the yearly Hacktoberfest meetup.

Automate Tasks with Bash Scripts

Wasting this productive time doing mundane repetitive tasks doesn’t really seem to be an option now. An ideal goal should be to automate anything that can be automated. Save the effort and time for actual meaningful work.

2018β€”The Year in Review

Let’s talk about 2018. This happens to be my first year in review. I am reflecting on my past year, not only to share with others but more importantly to keep a track for myself. I want to be able to weigh and evaluate myself in the future, to know where I come from and how far I have come. With that said, let’s start with the review. ✌

#TheOpenDevCon β€” JAMstack Conference by TheDevCouple Team

Every year, Ahmad AwaisMaedah Batool and their team organize several meetups/conferences aimed at upskilling the local community here in Pakistan. 2018 was no different as well, with the series of events starting from WordPress & JavaScript Meetup Lahore, held in January. This October, they arranged another conference, #TheOpenDevCon2018. I was lucky enough to attend it. Here is what happened, in detail.
