RailsGirls Summer of Code crowdfunding campaign
Did you know that women make up only 2% of of the open source community? That’s right. Only 2%.
Rails Girls Summer of Code wants to help Rails Girls students get into Open Source.
Just like in Google and Ruby Summer of Code, students will be paid so they’re free to work on Open Source projects fulltime for 3 months, while being supported by coaches and mentors.
Unlike those programs, the Rails Girls Summer of Code is about helping students to further expand their knowledge and skills by contributing to a Open Source projects (rather than producing sophisticated code).
In order to make this happen we are looking for your help!
