Here’s a special round-up dedicated to women!
But before we dive into that, let us update you on our Mozillians in Tunisia who organized a “Git Party” last Sunday at the Fab Lab Solidaire with new community members and others from clubs and associations. It was 3 hours of basic training where attendees discovered Git, how to start a collaborative project, how to contribute to projects in Github and other things they can partake in Github. Mozilla Tunisia is focusing on Git and Github where they are able to share our projects but can also use it to manage the activities of the community, so the last event was an extreme help for future activities!
