Do you want to contribute meaningfully to the world of Open Source while gaining invaluable real-world experience?
If you answer yes, our 30-day OpenSource Internship program is just what you've been searching for.
“In the past, contributing to OpenSource was a nice have, but now it is a must-have!”
In this comprehensive article, I will walk you through every aspect of the Tublian Open Source Internship.
At Tublian, we are dedicated to helping you grow and take your career to the next level.
The tech industry is pretty crowded these days, so you need something that makes you stand out to land a job. But there's more to it.
Open source can be super helpful for software developers. It makes you unique, gives you real work experience, helps you learn new programming skills, and, most importantly, shows you how to contribute to existing code projects when you're just starting.
At Tublian, we've seen that many developers struggle to get into the Open Source world, mainly because there isn't much guidance or mentorship available. That's why, in line with our goal to help developers supercharge their careers and get noticed, we've launched a 30-day Open Source Internship.
Our program is designed for all developers, regardless of their skill level. However, there are some prerequisite skills we'll discuss later on. Over 30 days (starting Oct 1st, 2023), we'll supply you (accepted developers) with tasks, projects, and the necessary resources to complete these tasks. In addition, you'll have the chance to meet and connect with industry experts and Open Source maintainers during our weekly check-in calls. This offers you valuable learning and networking opportunities.
Knowledge of Git/GitHub - check out our YouTube channel for our Git and GitHub masterclass.
