Dear all,

Wikimedia DE is currently looking for more projects and participants for
their first women hackathon "Ladies That FOSS"[^1] that takes place in
Berlin, on 29 October 2016.

It is a one-day event where different FOSS projects are matched with
women who are interested in FOSS but are not fully on board yet. The aim
is to lower the entry barrier by matching their skills and interests
with projects and allowing for enough time to work together with the
mentors on tasks where the impact can be seen after a day.
Some of the projects that are already on board, besides Wikidata,
MediaWiki, are Hood.ie and Coala. Before the event there will be a
workshop for all the mentors.

In case of interest, whether as a project or participant, please contact
Julia Schütze & Lucie-Aimée Kaffee at ladiesthatfoss at wikimedia.de,
and/or spread the word about the event!

All the best,
