Code For Pakistan at Digital Youth Summit 21

The Digital Youth Summit (DYS) is a technology-focused annual conference in Peshawar, Pakistan. Starting in 2014, DYS has become one of the largest, longest-running premier tech conferences in Pakistan. DYS 21 saw over 8,000 visitors at its Peshawar venue & 29,000 plus people tuning in online.

KPITB (one of Code for Pakistan’s earliest partners) hosts DYS in Peshawar, where we have a large network of technologists. Also, the conference’s goal overlaps with Code for Pakistan’s mission of using technology for good, so it made sense for us to provide a helping hand in organizing the conference. Apart from all the behind-the-scenes workings, Code for Pakistan was also an official content partner for DYS 21.

Samina Rizwan (Country Head — CfP) was part of the panel on women entrepreneurship & leadership in Tech. Alongside Jehan Ara (Katalyst Labs), Madiha Hamid (Chefling Tales), Sidra Imran (MPA Sindh), Ruici Tio (Facebook), and Samar Hasan (Epiphany) hosting the panel.
