Fynd Organizes Hackxagon, An Open Source Challenge For Its Engineers

Open Sources 13 Projects In A Day That Were Made Public In The Fynd Github Account.

As an initiative to give back to the open source community, Fynd, the unique fashion e-commerce portal had launched gofynd.io, a few months ago. This project enabled the engineers of the fashion e-commerce portal to learn new technologies, improve the core infrastructure and enhance the Fynd platform. However, Fynd wanted to streamline the open sourcing process for which, the fashion e-commerce portal introduced Fynd Hackxagon—Open Source Challenge. The tech team open-sourced 13 projects in a day that were later made available in the Fynd GitHub public account.

All the engineers across domains were asked to form groups or go solo and deliver a project that could be open sourced. The engineers had to open source an entire project in a day and additional time was granted to them as per their circumstances. Some of the projects that were open sourced are Application Load Balancer Log Parser, Celery, EC2 Scheduler, Collator, NQ2SQ.

Commenting on the Fynd Hackxagon—Open Source Challenge, Fynd Co-founder, Harsh Shah said, “We announced this drive because we wanted our engineers to understand the joy of contributing, and, at the same time induce creativity in them. The entire event was a whole new experience for all the engineers involved in it. None of our project release timelines was affected because of the Open Source Challenge. The number of iterations and challenges faced during the event gave them a different perspective on the open-source environment. We are happy to have contributed something to the open-source community and look forward to hosting such initiatives regularly.”
