Subject Looking for Mentors: Ladies That FOSS Event in Berlin
Date Wed, 17 Aug 2016 10:11:21 GMT
Ladies That FOSS is WMDE's first
Open Source Hack Event aimed primarily at women who want to join a Free and
Open Source Software (FOSS) project but don’t know where to start. This is
a unique opportunity for nonbinary and woman coders to test out uncharted
waters and code FOSS by meeting some people who already got the FOSS flu
and are deeply involved in projects.

So this is how it works. This day will be a one-day hack event where women
get the chance to dive into the FOSS movement and try out projects.
Projects will give women the chance to hack with them on something which
can be accomplished on that day. While hacking, the new women on the team
can get to know the FOSS movement and see what impact they can have.

This is an event which will offer newcomers the opportunity to engage
closely with the projects. Only four to six participants are matched with a
project. A unique chance to get to know some of the coolest projects and
coders out there and become part of the FOSS community. There will be
plenty of time for learning, trying, chatting, eating and *most of all,
coding FOSS*.

We already welcome Wikidata, Mozilla's Firefox Browser, Coala and MediaWiki
- BUT the collaboration is missing Apache projects! Please contact us, if
you are involved with a Apache project and want to become mentor and join
this event.

Where? In Berlin, at the Wikimedia Germany Office
When? 29th of October

We are looking forward to meet you!

Lucie and Julia
