We've got a whole list of ideas here but if you want to get into something that's not on the list? Step right up! If you're interested, then maybe others are too! Just step up quickly -- bc the CFP closes this Sunday. 2020.copyleftconf.org/program/

Saying goodbye to @outreachy, GSoC and other interns, looking back at how much code's been written and looking forward to some great #FOSS events this fall with member project communities and staff. sfconservancy.org/blog/2019/se
