Women in Open Source Week is Januaray 27 through February 7th! #osswomen
Opensource.com is hosting Women in Open Source Week this January 27 through February 7th.
Opensource.com will highlight the efforts of women in open source from January 27 through February 7. We will be focusing some of our content specifically on women working in free and open source software fields and collaborating on projects ranging from open knowledge to open hardware.
Read articles from women coders, hackers, developers, community managers, and educators.
Hear unique perspectives from across the globe, like Noopur Raval in India whose work with the Wikimedia Foundation has revealed a substantial gap in Wikipedia articles on successful Indian women and on cultural traditions of lower castes.
Learn about the exciting experiences of women working on projects for GNOME, the Open Technology Institute, OpenStack, and Red Hat. Plus, get the latest from Limor Fried on open hardware initiatives at Adafruit Industries!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
