How Crazy Codigo Got Its First Gig

By Annesha Mukhopadhyay

A couple of days ago, J was approached with what happens to be the coolest thing Crazy Codigo has ever done: Hosting a Virtual Workshop!
We had to do it on Behalf of a tech-education company called iNeuron.

So, when on an average Wednesday afternoon, J called me with this news, I obviously had to say yes. And then after informing Shiv and Sam about it, we got to work to make sure that this event was a huge success.

Deciding whether we wanted to do it

This was actually a no brainer for all of us.

Of course we wanted to host it! Not just that, we also wanted it to be the most poggers event ever. But that is easier said than done.

So we did the first logical thing everyone should do while organising an event: Join a voice channel on the Crazy Codigo Discord Server to divide work and have an action plan.

Choosing the Topic and Date

Choosing the Topic was easy. It had to be something cool and what is cooler than teaching people how to build their first ML model?

But the date wasn’t that easy. After considering a lot of factors like college reporting and us running on almost opposite schedules, we came to the conclusion that 6th and 7th August seemed like an almost perfect fit.

Making a Poster, Registration Form, Writing Mails and Posting on Socials

The first step was obviously making a poster for the event. You can’t promote an event without a poster.

After a lot of trial and error and sending each other 25 billion samples we decided on this:

Build Your First ML Project: A Virtual Workshop<br>

And while I was making sure that the poster is the prettiest thing ever, Sam made a google form for the registration and got onto the monotonous job of mailing every 2nd and 3rd year student at KIIT (Thank God that KIIT has a mailing list situation).

We also posted the poster and all the information on Crazy Codigo’s Instagram page, KIIT Instagram page and every WhatsApp group we were part of.

Wrapping Up

As you can evidently see, I and everyone else are very excited for this workshop and can’t wait to see all of you there.

And if this is the first time you are hearing about it and haven’t registered for it yet, well what are you waiting for? Go fill out the registration form right now and join us on 6th and 7th August.

Oh another cool fact: All participants will be provided with a certificate from iNeuron upon completion of the workshop!
