Ready your coding fingers, open source enthusiasts.
Women Who Code DC is the District’s local partner for #100DaysOfCommits, a community project that aims to encourage more people to get involved in open source. And while #100DaysOfCommits technically launched a couple days ago on Aug. 1, Women Who Code DC is holding a happy hour to celebrate the project on Friday, Aug. 5.
What better way to prepare for the coming months of coding than with a beer at Dacha?
#100DaysOfCommits is all about working on a non-work project for 100 days straight — all you need to participate is a GitHub and a Twitter or Instagram account. To get started you simply sign the pledge, then Tweet or post a screenshot of your commit every day with the hashtag #100DaysOfCommits.
Note: While Women Who Code DC is dedicated to empowering female coders, #100DaysOfCommits is not a female-only initative. Find more information and project ideas here.-30-
