The Ada Lovelace Fellowship encourages women, LGBTA+, and/or other minorities in the open technology movement to both participate and nurture an incredible, diverse community within open source.
For the fifth year running, we are ecstatic to offer TEN (10) Open Hardware Fellowships to members of the community. This includes travel assistance and entrance to the 2017 open Hardware Summit!
We are at an exciting point in time for open source and hope to encourage everyone, no matter their walk in life, to embrace and participate in this incredible movement!
The Open Source Hardware Association, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is excited to announce the 2017 Open Hardware Summit taking place October 5th, 2017 in Denver, Colorado. This is the annual gathering of the OSHWA organization and open hardware community. Through the Open Hardware Summit, we aim to create an inclusive welcoming environment to empower people in all stages of discovering open source technology.
The Open Hardware Summit is where anyone and everyone can participate and collaborate in the open source community!
- Sharing information on individual and corporate memberships with friends and colleagues
- Using our guidelines to certify projects or products as a form of standardized open hardware
- Participating on social media outlets (like Twitter and Facebook) to keep the conversation going and spread news of the summit
- Last, but far from least, donating to our 501(c)3 (be sure to remember that some companies match gift amounts their employees make to a non-profit! This doubles the distance that gifts will go!!)
