Helping fight COVID-19 using GitHub at GitHub Satellite 2021
- GitHub Satellite 2021
- Remote/virtual event
During the pandemic, I moved back to India and helped start Karuna 2020, a nonprofit that distributed meals to thousands of migrant laborers and masks to frontline workers. My team and I ended up building an open source platform on top of GitHub Actions to track donations, volunteers, distributions, etc.
Richa Kumar (Senior Director of Software Engineering at GitHub) interviewed me about my journey founding Karuna 2020 and building these tools, and I spoke about how the open source community came together during the pandemic and built tools for accountability and information in this 30-min talk.
