Imagine a day where you are truly part of a global community…where you can make a difference in the world and where you can learn from others. That day is here! It’s Open Source Day 2021, OSD, and it’s the biggest female-led movement in Open Source. It’s also a day where you get to decide how you want to be part of the community…you can participate in the Open Source Day hackathon…you can attend Open Source workshops and learn how you can contribute to Open Source…or you can be a mentor or coach for the day.
Open Source Day is an opportunity for women of all skill levels and backgrounds to collaborate and make a big impact by creating code that benefits the global community. The goal of OSD is to promote Open Source contributions by women in tech.
Participants will contribute code to curated open-source software (OSS) projects. You can choose from one of three project themes: Humanitarian, Female Focused or Wild Card. OSS is an increasingly important skill to have as companies often require an understanding of and ability to contribute to it. You will work in groups, gaining the opportunity to learn from each other as well as learning from experienced mentors who will be there to guide you.
The future is female in Open Source. Let’s own it together and make a huge impact in the world! Are you ready to be a part of this? If so, please register for Open Source Day July 15, 2021! Details coming soon.
