Rails Girls Summer of Code Project: diaspora*

What is Rails Girls Summer of Code ?

  • global fellowship program
  • aimed at bringing more diversity into Open Source
  • applicants are paid a monthly stipend
  • from July-September
  • work on Open Source projects of their choice.
  • unlike the Google Summer of Code you don't need to be enrolled in a University

The focus is not on producing highly sophisticated code, but rather participants learning transferable skills from their project work.

diaspora* is a privacy-aware, decentralized social network which puts users in control of their data security

  • 2010 the project was funded as a Kickstarter collecting over $200,000
