Meet Flyte at Hacktoberfest 2021

Open-source is growing fast, so are its contributors. At Flyte, we have had meaningful contributions from many contributors who have helped us improve Flyte’s codebase and made us think through unseen perspectives. We have always wanted to have more such contributions to expand our horizons. We have been thinking about ways to get more people involved, and at the same time, give back to our community.

We know that October is the month of the year when open-source is the most alive. Revealing Hacktoberfest 2021!

About Hacktoberfest

Hacktoberfest is the month-long event held in October to celebrate open-source software, which is when you can contribute to open-source software irrespective of what you do. It indeed is an excellent opportunity to develop your skills, and most importantly, win limited edition swag 🎁.

This year, we’re beyond thrilled to be a part of it. ✨

About Flyte

Flyte is an open-source, container-native, structured programming and distributed processing platform. It enables highly concurrent, scalable, and maintainable workflows for machine learning and data processing.

We at Flyte are constantly striving to make MLOps better by providing off-the-shelf orchestration mechanisms to automate the way you build pipelines. Ours is a Kubernetes-native and type-safe platform — which we are super proud of!

Though what Flyte encompasses is enormous, we made sure your onboarding process is easy, so fret not! And with the tremendous growth rate of MLOps with its increased adoption, who doesn’t want to be part of a vibrant community and have some contributions flowing along the MLOps space?
