Fwd: Join The Movement - AnitaB.org Open Source Day 2021 on July 15th
Hello Debian Women and Debian Outreach teams,
We in press@ have received the invitation below about a one-day-hackathon including workshops for next July 15th.
I have had a look at their website and it looks like an event focused on getting people started to their first contributions to free software projects.
I have not seen how to become "partner project" so people could join the event to contribute to Debian, but maybe it's interesting anyway to spread the word, know possible contributors, or contact them for exploring possible collaborations as a project.
If somebody participates and would like to share their experience from the Debian perspective, we're happy to help you publish a blog post in bits.debian.org: see here https://bits.debian.org/pages/about.html how to start a draft or contact the debian-publicity@ mailing list.
