Open Source Day

Women working together

 

Welcome to the largest celebration of women in Open Source

A virtual GHC pre-event on September 16th, 2022

*This is a virtual pre-event to Grace Hopper Celebration 2022. You will need a GHC ticket to attend.*

Open Source Day is a celebration of all women in open source. Our goal? To pave the way for the next generation of contributors and maintainers in the community. Because a diverse community is an effective and innovative one and it’s a painful truth that diversity in the open source community is worse than diversity in tech overall. In the most recent survey of the Linux Foundation, less than 7% of respondents were women. OSD is your chance to be part of a global community and learn from other community members.

Set up as an all day hackathon, during OSD you’ll work with peers as well as experienced mentors to make open source contributions; Alternative you can attend workshops designed to level-up your skills in open source.
