Diversity scholarships for DevConf.CZ


(Marina Zhurakhinskaya) #1

DevConf.CZ 2019 is the 11th annual, free, Red Hat sponsored community conference for developers, admins, DevOps engineers, testers, documentation writers and other contributors to open source technologies taking place January 25-27, 2019 in the beautiful city of Brno, Czech Republic. You can learn more about the conference and see the schedule at https://devconf.info/cz

In an effort to create a more diverse and inclusive event, the conference is offering diversity scholarships that cover travel-related expenses for attendees who do not work at Red Hat and who are students or are relatively new or returning to full-time work in technology. Because there are also annual DevConf conferences in Bangalore, India and in Boston, USA, the scholarships for the Brno DevConf are for people who live in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East, and Africa). The scholarships provide up to 1,000 USD towards transportation, hotel, food, child care, and other expenses. Decisions will be made based on applicants’ experience with Red Hat-supported and other open source technologies and based on being a student or being new or returning to full-time work in technology. You can find more details and apply by 5pm UTC on Friday, January 11 at https://goo.gl/forms/cOYvpGRnFiZjvJ0B2
