Hi, I'm Anna 👋
A documentarian and tech consultant based in Brazil.
Outreachy @ Software Freedom Conservancy
Outreachy is a three-month internship program for underrepresented groups in tech. Open to participants around the world, interns work remotely in free and open source software (FOSS). Under Software Freedom Conservancy's umbrella, interns are paid a stipend of $5,500 USD and given a $500 USD travel stipend to attend conferences or events.
In September of 2018, Outreachy decided to expand their scope to anyone who faces underrepresentation, systemic bias, or discrimination in the technology industry of their country. I became a part of Outreachy's team soon after, helping them with initial application and selection processes, promotion and communications between applicants, interns, mentors, coordinators, participating communities and sponsors.
Open Collective @ Google Season of Docs
Google Season of Docs provides "a framework for technical writers and open source projects to work together towards the common goal of improving an open source project's documentation". Technical writers work closely with organizations for a few months bringing their expertise to the project's documentation while learning more about them and new technologies.
In August of 2019, I was one of the 52 technical writers selected to the first round of the program. I've been working with Open Collective — a plataform created to provide funding to open projects around the world — to improve their documentation culture and general help pages.
Free Software Ecosystems @ LAPPIS/UnB
The project "Free Software Ecosystems" was born from a partnership of the Laboratory of Advanced Production, Research and Innovation of Software (LAPPIS/UnB) with the Brazilian Ministry of Culture (MinC) in October of 2017. It strives for bringing innovation to free software systems developed by MinC and coordinating applied research in continuous delivery, DevOps and machine learning techniques.
In August of 2019, I was hired by LAPPIS/UnB as a technical consultant, joining their efforts to bring the campaign "Public Money, Public Code" by Free Software Foundation Europe to Brazil and offering my expertise in open projects.
