We’re happy to announce the selection of our 2020 interns from Outreachy—a remote internship program that “supports diversity in free and open source software.”
Over the next three months, these interns will work with several members of the Creative Commons’ team on three different projects related to the CC Vocabulary, the CC License Chooser, and the CC Platform Toolkit.
Meet our 2020 interns!
Ana Paula Rocha
Ana is from Brazil and will be working on the CC Platform Toolkit—a guide for developers creating platforms and tools in which it makes sense to offer CC licensing to users. She’ll use her background in advertising and interest in user-interface (UI) development to help us rethink and upgrade the guide.
Olga is originally from Kazakhstan but is currently living in Turkey. She will be working on the CC License Chooser, applying her experience as an open source, freelance developer to create a new version with a greater focus on helping people learn more about CC licenses.
Chidiebere is from Nigeria and will apply his skills as a front-end developer, network engineer, and mobile web specialist to improve the recently developed CC Vocabulary, an open source software project that provides a cohesive web-design system for CC.
We’re very excited to be working with these talented individuals and can’t wait to get started!
