Through our initiatives, we aim to:
Empower underepresented groups:
- We are passionate about increasing the representation of Māori and females in the tech space. By providing support, mentorship, and opportunities, we seek to bridge the diversity gap and empower underrepresented individuals to thrive in tech careers.
- We believe that collaboration is key to unlocking the full potential of technology. Our community serves as a hub for like-minded individuals to connect, share knowledge, and work together on cloud-native, open-source projects that push the boundaries of innovation.
Promote open source principles
- Open source lies at the heart of our community. We advocate for the free exchange of ideas and knowledge, enabling continuous learning and collective progress in the tech industry.
