Systers is an international community for all women involved in the technical aspects of computing. We welcome the participation of women technologists of all ages and at any stage of their studies or careers.
We engage our community by contributing to open source, collaborating with the global community, and learning/enhancing our coding skills. We are committed to providing a safe, positive online community for our many volunteers that offer their skills, time, and commitment to our projects.
In order to engage with the community, you can sign up on Systers Open Source Slack.
A primary goal of Systers is to be inclusive to the largest number of contributors, with the most varied and diverse backgrounds possible. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and religion (or lack thereof).
Systers has many volunteers and potential volunteers that offer their skills, time and commitment to our vision. This Volunteer Management System will be particularly useful for volunteer coordinators, volunteer sign-up, tracking hours, and reporting.
It has a new process of notifying specific responsible parties of managing volunteers and the hours they worked through automated features. VMS reporting will enable community program manager to track volunteers hours worked through automated communication emails.
Two of our amazing GCI'15 contributors added files in which they wrote about how to get help from the community and how to get involved with VMS
