‘Women Who Code’ MeetUp 10/17

Opportunities in Free and Open Source Software

Hosted in NYC 10/17

30 W 26th Street, 7th floor, New YorkNY (map)

Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is software that gives the user the freedom to use, copy, study, and improve it. FOSS contributors believe that this is the best way to develop software because it benefits society, creates a fun collaborative community around a project, and allows anyone to make innovative changes that reach many people. Across the software industry, employers hold FOSS contributions in high regard. By contributing to FOSS you can show prospective employers your skills and potential. Learn how to get involved in FOSS at this event!

Schedule 
6:30-7:00pm Appetizers and Socializing 
7:00-8:30pm Panel Discussion and Q&A 
8:30-9:30pm More Socializing

The panel will discuss the many opportunities available for starting to contribute to FOSS, such as getting involved as a volunteer or participating in a remote internship. You will learn what technologies the panelists have worked on and how you can pick among hundreds of exciting options. The available internship opportunities are:

Outreach Program for Women (OPW): offers mentored, remote internships and $5,500 stipend to women (cis and trans) and genderqueer people. Coding, documentation, user experience, and other types of projects are available. The next December - March round has an application deadline coming up very soon, on October 22. If you are interested in applying for it,review the participating organizations and start working on the required contribution to the project you would like to apply for before the event. Come to meet past participants, fellow applicants, and get your questions answered. The next round will be May - August, with an application deadline in March.

Google Summer of Code (GSoC): offers mentored, remote internships and $5,500 stipend to students at accredited colleges and universities working on coding projects. You can even be registered for just one course at a community college to be eligible to participate. The next round will be May - August, with an application deadline in March.

Starting to contribute early would make your application stronger for either program!

NSBE Metropolitan-Long Island Fall Zone Conference

New York, NY (Sep. 27, 2014) — After 5 months of planning, the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) of New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) brought together various local chapters, high school students and NSBE alums under one roof on Saturday, September 27, 2014, for the annual Fall Zone Conference.

“This is the first time that members can see what NSBE is about”, Jamiah Braithwaite, NSBE’s Manhattan President, said. “You get a feeling of a family that is welcoming to any newcomers.”

Held in NYIT’s Auditorium on Broadway, more than 75 individuals from across the Metropolitan and Long Island area attended to participate in nine workshops throughout the day that covered: “Conflict Resolution,” “What is Cultural Responsibility?” and “Presidents Assemble!” a favorite of NSBE Old Westbury President, Don Jeudi.

It was a time to express chapter concerns and plan events where we can collaborate across various colleges and become more connected - and that is important to me,” Jeudi said.

The conference gave aspiring engineers the opportunity to not only network, but help cultivate skills to be successful in the workplace.

“For all parties involved, it's guaranteed that you will meet someone new and learn something new; a person and a thing that is likely to last you much longer than just that day,” said NYIT student Omari Adams, President of the Zone Conference.

School of Engineering Dean Gives Freshmen Advice on How to Succeed in College

Dr. Nada Marie Anid, dean of the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences at NYIT, published her letter to the editor titled,"How to Succeed in College" in the September 18 edition of the New York Times. In her letter she gives the same three pieces of advice she gave to the entering Class of 2018:

1) Always ask for help: overcome your shyness and pride. It’s O.K. if you don’t know — just ask.

2) Make friends: that’s an important part of what college is for — long-lasting friendships. College is about the people you meet; that human experience is unequaled.

3)Be engaged: join a club, and if no club is to your liking, start a club. Prepare a budget and a list of activities. Make sure that you know where the career services office is located. Build your résumé.
