Open Source Coding

I spent my entire day participating in the Open Source Hack-a-thon at the Grace Hopper Celebration. I spent my time working with representatives from Oppia and women of all experience levels trying to work on some reported problems. Oppia is a really cool idea that I plan to dedicate some time to in the future; it is an education platform with the goal of educating kids despite their location or resources.

My group ended up not coding at all, instead we worked out how to help Windows users get the stuff up and running. There were a lot of issues and so much frustration but we did manage to get it up and running and we wrote a step by step guide that is to be incorporated into Oppia’s wiki.

Not the day I had planned for but a success nonetheless.
