Open Source is not only a great way to code on larger projects with a community of developers, but also it will help you become a better developer, build up a work history on GitHub and connection to the wider community.
“The gender imbalance in open source remains profound: 95% of respondents are men; just 3% are women and 1% are non-binary.” http://opensourcesurvey.org
This cross community event is aimed at engaging more women in Open Source projects by connecting them to safe and diverse projects.
