lecture: A Summer full of Code
The CodePadawans journey with Rails Girls Summer of Code
Ute and Magdalena teamed as the CodePadawans for three months full of code by the Rails Girls Summer of Code initiative. They will talk about the program, their personal experiences and present the latest results of working on their two Open Source projects: a website for the padrino documentation and jibe - a tool for documentation testing.
Rails Girls Summer of Code is a global fellowship program aimed at bringing more diversity into Open Source. Successful applicants are paid a monthly stipend, from July-September, to work on Open Source projects of their choice.
The CodePadawans is one of ten teams choosen out of more than 100 applications worldwide.
Being, at the time of the conference, halfway through our journey with the Rails Girls Summer of Code, we’d like to introduce the program and its connections to Open Source.
We will share our personal experiences and look into how the ‘learning by doing approach’ has been working for us. We hope to proudly present the latest results of working on our two Source projects.
Last but not least we want to spread the word about this awesome initiavtive.
