  • Internships in usability testing

    Are you interested in free and open source software? Do you use GNOME? Then consider applying for an internship with Outreachy!

    GNOME and other projects are offering paid, mentored, remote internships to people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software as part of the Outreachy project. This round is open internationally to women (cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people. Outreachy is also open in the U.S. to participants with Black/African American, Hispanic/Latin, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander backgrounds.

Since I’m doing this in my free time I didn’t work on it as much as I would like to, but I’m quite happy to be part of this community.

Four Things a New Linux User Should Know

If you’re making the move from Windows or Mac (or even from Android or iOS), welcome to our world. These days, using Linux for doing everyday computer tasks isn’t that much different than using other operating systems — meaning the learning curve is only slight.
