Creative FOSS aims to lower the barrier to entry of contributing to open source projects, specifically for non-technical people.
About this Project
This project is part of the 2020 GNOME Community Engagement Challenge and meant for use by the Creative FOSS team, Challenge organizers, and Challenge judges.
The 2020 GNOME Community Engagement Challenge is a three-part challenge created in partnership with Endless. The Challenge encourages individuals or teams to create stimulating ideas that will connect the next generation of coders to the FOSS community and keep them involved for years to come. Learn more about the Challenge.
Software isn’t just about the code. Good software requires a good user experience. But what do graphic/UI/UX designers, marketers, copywriters, animators, translators, and other creative people have in common? They almost never contribute to FOSS, and that’s an issue. Creative FOSS aims to lower the barrier to entry of contributing to open source projects, specifically for non-technical people. No command line, no building the project from sources, and no spooky git commands, just a dead simple streamlined way for creative people of various professions to contribute their work.
How to Use this Project
Members of the Creative FOSS team should use this GitLab project to enter their Phase 2 submissions. For this phase, we ask you to submit a proof of concept for your project. Your proof of concept can be a working prototype, project examples, and/or documentation demonstrating your concept.
- All code-based projects should store their code and assets in the repository of this project.
- All non-code projects should upload all relevant materials as PDF or jpeg files to the project repository.
All Phase 2 submissions must be added to this folder by Nov 2, 2020, at or before 23:59 UTC.
