Speaking at OSCON 2014

Our talk was accepted!

On the final day of 2013, Happy Cog developer, Girl Develop It Philly instructor —also longtime friend—Cat Farman and I got together and finished up our OSCON speaker proposal: Lessons from Girl Develop It: Getting More Women Involved in Open Source. We recorded our required video and shipped off our packet.

In March, we were notified that our talk was accepted and that we’d be heading to the O’Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) in Portland, OR this July. Ecstatic, we started building out the plan for the Summer of Open Source Fellowship as a pilot program to engage local members more deeply in open source.

We launched the program at the end of May and have been meeting up regularly to work on our proposal. Really excited to share what we’ve learned with a broader audience.
