Having three cats means I get to see the ridiculous things they teach each other. Kirk discovered he likes wandering around with a toy in his mouth and yowling for someone to come play, so now Sputnik is trying the same thing except he doesn’t really get that you’re supposed to keep the toy until someone comes to play with you.

Hey! #Outreachy applications for the next December-March round are now open! outreachy.org 🎉

They offer three month internships with free and open source projects — #FOSS. Interns are paid a 5,500 USD stipend and have access to a 500 USD travel allowance.

I can't recommend this program enough. It's such a rich and welcoming experience, in addition to being a great way to start working in tech.

Start your application today!

Community conference organizers, the survey for the event planning book is still open: airtable.com/shrvbemYqHvL1Z7tt
We'd love to hear about your experiences, what worked, things you're still trying to figure out.

A fairly long shot, but does anyone else here have any experience in writing grants for LGBT+ community centers?

I'm on the board for one and it's very much a hands on process. As such, fundraising is in our hands. We've done good, but I would love to have a little bit of breathing room and would like to apply for a grant to help pay for things like, you know, rent and electricity. Anyone have any prior knowledge in that area?

Totally okay if not. Like I said, definitely a long shot.

If recent events have you thinking about codes of conduct, you can hire me to evaluate yours and make an action plan to be ready to start enforcing it. $200 and I have a sponsored spot for a project that can’t afford to do this on their own. lifeofaudrey.com/2018/07/16/co

I'm looking to spend some of my "professional development" allowance. What are the best books on programming topics and/or software-development-as-career that you've read this year? Do you subscribe to any screencast series or anything like that?

(Please feel free to boost/tag in folks if you know people who might have interesting answers?)
