Towards a Robust, Open-Source Civic Data Ecosystem
Funding provided through the National Science Foundation’s “Pathways to Enable Open-Source Ecosystems” Program will be used to develop a plan to strengthen the CKAN ecosystem
DigitalFems, a non-profit organisation that promotes the presence of women in open-source communities, is opening a call for female and non-binary gender developers to contribute to CKAN as part of their DigitalFems Grant Programme. They are searching for a MENTOR to help the developers solve technical doubts related to CKAN features.
What is expected from the MENTOR?
The ideal MENTOR is a male or female senior developer with good knowledge of CKAN. As important as having a good level of knowledge is also believing that increasing the number of female devs in tech in general - and in CKAN in particular - is of great importance and that good coding skills are not related to gender. Enjoying teaching and showcasing CKAN features is also important.
What is DigitalFems looking for?
Digitalfems is looking for a MENTOR to cover 20 hours in 6 weeks. The hourly fee to contribute to a more diverse CKAN community is 35€, making a total of 700€ + taxes.
Tasks expected from the MENTOR:
What are the main deliverables?
What is the grantee's profile?
The grantees profiles will be female or non-binary devs, with around 2 years of coding experience, RoR/ Python knowledge, and basic backend skills.
When will you get paid?
Once the contractual paperwork is finalized, you will be paid 40% of the total amount. On completing the project you will be paid the remaining 60%.
