Outreachy is a paid, remote internship program. Internships last three months. Interns and mentors work completely remotely.
Outreachy’s goal is to improve diversity in open source. Past interns are 92% women, 64% people of color, and 12% from a historically disadvantaged caste or tribe. Interns come from around the world, with many interns located in India, Nigeria, and Uganda.
Outreachy is providing a grant to fund interns working with humanitarian open source communities. The Outreachy grant will pay for the internship stipend. This is an ideal chance to get a diverse set of people working with your humanitarian open source community.
I haven’t streamed on Wednesday mornings in four weeks. Maybe more. And I just realized it might be because of a tweet I took rather personally even though it wasn’t meant personally or maliciously whatsoever nor even meant as a slight against me.
Finally, today, after much discussion and thought and deciding I had rather made a mountain out of a molehill. Oh, yes, and another Wednesday morning without open source streaming, I pushed LIVE on a stream this afternoon and explained what happened.
I submitted a code for Equinix’s virtual hackathon. And spoke at Fedora Women’s Day about being non-binary and talking about mental health and my Fedora story. And then I streamed a new escape room game.
I am totally SQUEEE to speak at the Dutch Kubernetes Meetup XL tonight along with GitHub’s Sarah Khalife, Microsoft’s @bongo & @karenhchu, LeafCloud co-founder Thatcher Peskens, & HashiCorp’s @onlydole to comment on items announced at #KubeCon!! !
The super awesomeness about this is that it’s virtual AND free AND during the USA day for only a few hours, so if you’re super keen to see me talk about all things #kubernetes and #CloudNative and mostly likely, yes, #CharacterShoes, register NOW!
Two weeks ago I was on vacation and not really doing the technical stream thing except then I had a look over the OpenStack on Packet repository, ended up auditing the entire README.md, making a series of pull request, became an official collaborator on the project and said I’d be running it the following week.
