Being students who started their contribution to Open Source through Outreach programmes, Urvika and Pranav would talk about two major open source initiatives – Google Summer of Code and Outreachy. We both worked on Free - RTC application. Our objective would be to talk about How we got selected into these programmes, about the interesting tasks we got to do, how our mentors helped us along the way but kept enough room to explore on our own and the warm open source community we got to experience. Both of us belong from underrepresented group in technology.

These programmes provided a platform so that we, as newcomers, could reach out to open source projects. In the same way, we plan to keep driving involvement into open source projects through such programmes so that more community is benefited.
