Watch the recording of the ISCBacademy webinar on growing open source communities

Yesterday we hosted the OBF/BOSC contribution to the ISCBacademy webinar. Our former OBF-board member and Open Life Science co-lead Yo Yehudi presented how internship programs such as Google Summer of Code or Outreachy can be a great way to grow your open source community. If you missed the event, you can now watch the recording on YouTube.

Lalit Narayan, who is an undergraduate student at the Indian Institute of Technology Mandi, was a first-time webinar attendee:

“This was my first time attending a webinar from OBF and I enjoyed it. Yo was a really great speaker and it was fun to get guidance from them. I had done industrial internships in the past but not any formal research internships. I really liked the idea of getting connected to like-minded people and working together in a team to work on an interesting research idea. In a team environment we learn from peers and spend time together which eventually leads to a great network.”
