Grant for Humanitarian Open Source Communities

Deadline: 01 March 2021 at 1600 UTC

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.

But first the news:

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.

Reminder: This Is A Safe Space

[Dutch Lock Down Day Two Hundred Sixty Five]

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.

But I totally took it that way.

Cause #criticism

But first the news:

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 think it’ll help.

I hope.

Holy Hell, Today

[Dutch Lock Down Day Two Hundred Thirteen]

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.

It’s time for bed.

But first the news:

#WorthIt

But.

Tomorrow! Morning! OpenStack! On! Packet!

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Fifty Five]

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.

And then it was hot.

But first the news:

So hot, in fact, that I did not one single stream, vlog, or recording for the entire eight day heatwave.

But!

Tomorrow!

Morning!

At 0900 GMT!

On Twitch and YouTube and Twitter!! !

And I set up a couple of new visuals for this one. Can you tell I’m excited? Wanna see?
