The main goal of this project is to shed some light on great open source projects that don’t receive enough attention on a regular basis.
We’re looking at OSS projects or initiatives following an open and transparent culture, especially those eager to collaborate and receive contributions from anyone interested.
GitHub stars are not our criteria, and we’re looking for hidden gems that may not have enough marketing power or huge companies behind them.
We try our best to make all our events accessible and inclusive for a diverse audience. Get in touch with us if you wish to support this initiative, and help us provide Diversity Scholarships for the underrepresented groups in tech.
