What is BIO-S?
BIO-S is a student-led community that promotes open source and community culture in Nashik and globally. We also advocate for various other initiatives such as hackathons, learning in public, building in public, and more.
Founded in November 2022, BIO-S has been dedicated to spreading awareness about the aforementioned activities and encouraging more individuals to engage in open source projects.
The vision behind BIO-S is straightforward: to promote open source and community culture, particularly among those who are new to communities. Regardless of your background, interests, or location, if you're passionate about technology and related domains, I'd love for you to be a part of this community.
Brief history of BIO-S
When I began coding, I wished for a community that could guide me whenever I was stuck and help me overcome all the hindrances I faced. After joining college, I found many individuals reaching out to me for assistance, which inspired me to start a community where anyone and everyone can freely ask for help.
Another reason for founding BIO-S was that I realized many girls or students from non-tech backgrounds were hesitant to even start in tech. After talking to such individuals and observing their interest, I decided to create a space where people feel included not based on their gender or background, but on their shared interests.
Now, talking about what BIO-S has accomplished, here are a few things I want to highlight.
- Organized a session on Open Source and Hackathons.
- Participated in MLH: Global Hack Week as a guild.
- Started an online campaign, #100DaysOfCodeBIOS, and motivated a lot of folks to start coding.
- Participated as community partners in various online/offline events and hackathons.
This list is actually exhaustive. One of the major reasons for having more members is that we can host more of such events.
Meet the founder — Adarsh Dubey
Hey there! I’m Adarsh Dubey, the founder and leader of the BIO-S Community. I have been involved with communities like WeMakeDevs and Geek Around Community for quite some time now, learning about teamwork, community management, and how to assist people through community engagement. I’m a full-stack web developer, a machine learning enthusiast, and a UX designer.
In addition to that, I am also a freelancer, having worked as a freelance web designer and web developer for a couple of years now. Here’s my portfolio in case you want to take a look. Let me know what you think about it—I’d love some feedback.
I am very passionate about open source and communities, and I have been an advocate for the same for quite some time now. With the same vision, I started BIO-S, and for the same reason, I am expanding the team.
Who am I looking for?
Let’s make it clear, I’m looking for someone who’s passionate about tech and open source. That’s all, quite literally.
Even though I have listed some roles below, it doesn’t mean that you’ll be sticking to that role forever. My idea of having a team is that everyone gets to work on what they like, so if you want to work on something else, you’re more than welcome.
If you’re interested in more than one role, make sure to select all the roles you want to apply for.
So, I’m looking for some core team members who'd work alongside me and make decisions for BIO-S. While this role might seem better than all the other roles, I’ll be very skeptical when choosing individuals for this position. There are going to be 2-3 folks who are finally going to be in the core team. I really want individuals who are passionate about open source, community, and growing BIO-S.
Do you like talking to people? Then this is for you. You'll be interacting directly with community. You'll be responsible to understand what the community needs and why do they need.
You’ll mostly be working on code and BIO-S’ GitHub organization. Do you like coding or design? This is for you. No specific tech stack or design domain is required.
Social Media Team
If you enjoy writing and have a knack for social media, you should definitely join us! You'll be working on Twitter, YouTube, and similar platforms.
Although the teams will be divided based on their roles, we will all be working for events and special situations. I’ll be collaborating with all the teams. Also, being in one team doesn’t mean you can't work with another team; you definitely can!
Benefits of joining BIO-S
Below are some perks of joining BIO-S as a team member. Now, this list is not exhaustive and definitely doesn’t do justice to the growth you might experience after joining BIO-S; still, I have listed some perks below:
- Always have a team by your side.
- Learn how a team works.
- Get involved in the organizing team of future meetups and events.
- Learn from industry leaders (I’ll be inviting some every month).
- Work on what you like.
- Collaborate with some of the best folks in Nashik.
Certificate? Stipend? Nope. This isn’t an internship or anything similar; it’s volunteer work. If you have some time and want to invest in building a community and helping others while learning at the same time, this is for you.
There’s a lot coming for the BIO-S Community in the near future, and you'll be a part of it when you join. Some of the upcoming activities include:
- Monthly meetups (still in planning; join in and let’s make this happen)
- Online / Offline sessions
- Hackathons / Blogathons and other competitions
- "Roast me" sessions
- Participation as a team (Buildspace / Global Hack Week / Other hackathons )
- Participation as a community partner in various hackathons and events
- ...and much more!
