I hope you all had a fabulous holiday break and are adjusting back into work nicely! I can hardly believe it’s 2021–Gift of Open Source flew by! Speaking of, I wanted to share a quick update with you all!
Together, we were able to contribute to over 140+ open source issues. From helping support the Gutenberg editor, to giving back to Drupal Diversity & Inclusion [to name a few]-- your contributions made a huge impact! Here are some other really awesome highlights & well deserved shout outs!
Special thank you to @KurtTrowbridge & @amyjune for taking time to share their open source story with the rest of the world! For those who are interested, you can read all about it in this blog: Gift of Open Source: Changing the World, One Contribution at a Time.
Another big thank you going out to @amyjune for her unwavering commitment towards making technology more accessible for everyone — including non-coders and people with disabilities AmyJune stepped up big to organize and deliver 8 WP/Drupal workshops throughout this challenge!
And of course, congratulations to @brittany.huntzberry for winning our Open Source Giveaway! Your story was inspiration to us all–thank you for sharing!
Last but not least, I wanted to share this leaderboard with you all! While every contribution was equally valued, these community members came in at the top.
Leaderboard: @amyjune | @bramdriesen | @sparklingrobots | @shelane | @dandaman
