This Women's Month culminating event will be our Project Ricotta Hackathon! This unique hackathon will use OSS contributions from GDI participants to create new web access for a global nonprofit, Lasagna Love. All March long, speakers and workshops will provide you with the information, tools, and network to gain knowledge about using OSS and will result in a project you can proudly share as your own.
Watch a recording of our kick-off event to learn more: Loving & Learning OSS from March 8th.
Individuals who participate in this Hackathon will be paired with peers who have similar experiences and will be mentored by experienced volunteers who will support your process. The Hackathon will kick-off on Friday, March 31 at 12p ET / 9am PT. Prior to the event, set-up and prep events are available; it is recommended that you attend every March workshop to ensure you are informed and prepared to participate in this Hackathon.
