Recently, I and my Co – speaker Pranav Jain, got a chance to speak at Open Source Bridge conference which was held in Portland, Oregon!
Pranav talked about GSoC and I talked about Outreachy , together we talked about Free RTC project Lumicall.
OSB conference was much more than just a ‘conference’. More than content in the talks, it had meaning. I am referring to the amazing keynote session by Nicole Sanchez on Tech Reform. She explained wonderfully the need of the hour, i.e Diversity inclusion is not just ‘inclusion’. Focus should be on what comes after the inclusion, Growth.
We also met several Debian developers and Debian mentor for Outreachy (Hoping to meet my mentors someday!! )
Thanks to OSB, I got to meet Outreachy co-ordinator Sarah Sharp! It was wonderful meeting an Outreachy-person! 😀 We talked and exchanged ideas about the programme. and.. she clicked beautiful pictures of us delivering the talk.
The talk ended with an unexpected and very precious hand written note written by Audrey Eschright..
Thank you Debian for giving us a chance to speak at Open Source Bridge and to meet wonderful people in Open Source. ❤
