Open Source Day: Code-a-thon for Humanity

By RSVP Only. With the widespread adoption of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) in the commercial and nonprofit worlds, an increasing number of employment opportunities require an understanding of and ability to contribute to this kind of software. One of the biggest hurdles to contributing to FOSS is lack of experience or opportunities to try it. Our Open Source Day (OSD) gives women from around the world the chance to learn how to contribute to the open source community, regardless of their skill or experience level.
