How we work to improve diversity in tech with Rails Girls Summer of Code
Community is at the focus of everything we do at Travis CI. That’s why we’re proud to be running and sponsoring Rails Girls Summer of Code, a fellowship program administered by a non-profit initiative run by Travis CI, the Travis Foundation.
RGSoC supports female and non-binary coders around the world by offering scholarships to work on open source projects for three months, from July to September.
This breaks down the financial barriers that all too often prevent individuals from underrepresented groups entering a career in tech. Student teams are supported by mentors, coaches and experienced programmers that help develop their skills and confidence in coding.
Could you mentor an RGSoC team?
RGSoC is now accepting new project submissions. If you are working on an exciting open source project perfect for a coding experienced beginner to work on, here’s your chance.
Simply add it to the Teams App before the deadline on 10 February 2020.
As a mentor, you’ll be active in improving diversity in tech and gain valuable contributions to your project.
All programming languages are welcome, not just Rails.
To give your project the best chance of success, take a look at the project mentor guidelines.
