Open Source Day

Open Source Day Committee

Applications are closed for GHC 20.

The Open Source Day Planning Committee is an imperative part of creating OSD. As a planning committee member, you will participate in planning from start to finish doing anything from marketing, project planning, designing the structure of OSD, working with external organizations to bring them on as OSD project leaders and ensure they are ready for OSD, reaching out to attendees to make sure they know what to expect, and/or executing OSD during GHC.

Note: Our Open Source Day (OSD) Committee is separate from our Open Source Track Committee.


Application period:

  • Applications are open in February (closed for GHC 20).

Registration benefits:

  • This opportunity provides early access to register for GHC.


  • You must be able to dedicate 10-20 hours a month starting in March until GHC and attend GHC.

Open Source Day Mentor

Each year hosts a day long Codeathon for Humanity with other organizations.
