PyCon sprint 2014

From OpenHatch wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

OpenHatch is an open source web app for helping people get involved in open source projects. We do that through web-based interactive tutorials called "training missions;" a browsing tool for bitesize bugs in open source projects called the "volunteer opportunity finder"; and an online mentor/mentee matching tool.

OpenHatch is written in Django and we welcome people of any level to contribute! We also need CSS and Javascript help.

Goal of the OpenHatch project[edit]

OpenHatch’s goal is to make the free software/open source community more welcoming to newcomers. To do this, we provide curricula and logistical support for running “Intro to Open Source” workshops, a website with open source tools, “training missions” and a volunteer opportunity finder, and several other projects in progress.
