Everyone knows that the tech enthusiasts hold a strong passion for reading articles – whether it be about their specific domain, cutting-edge technologies, source codes & programs, or any other (and yes, it’s really a good practice!!). However, the thing which only a few know is that these tech geeks often like to articulate their learnings or showcase their expertise in a particular area through their writings and want to share it with the right audience as well. Although, due to the lack of opportunities or resources, most of the individuals don’t even get a single chance to showcase their technical & writing skills.
But like always, GeeksforGeeks has got your back and is coming up with a great opportunity i.e., Technical Scripter Event where all the geeks out there can showcase their technical & writing skills and can share it with anyone across the world! Moreover, you don’t need to step out of your house to participate in the event as you can write and submit your article sitting at your home. And yes, all the participants of the Technical Scripter Event will be rewarded with some exciting prizes too.
A renowned platform, a worthwhile opportunity, ease of participation, and interesting prizes – What else you need?
