    Not only is GSoC wrapping up now as school nears for many of the involved student developers, but the Outreachy internship program is also ending this coming week...

    Who does the poorly drawn coloring books? Interns? If so, what a waste. Sponsors should be demanding their money back form this racist/sexist outfit.

          That's not a colouring book, it's a novel with some crappy images.

          Also, I'm scared to learn what the story in that thing is.
          WHY IS THERE "CUSTOMER SUPPORT" IN A COLOURING BOOK.
          HOW MANY KIDS KNOW WHAT CUSTOMER SUPPORT EVEN IS.

          WHY CAN'T ANYONE THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN!!?!?!1

              Looking at that colouring book it definitely looks like money well spent! Maybe they can try to double the budget next year?

                The sad thing is all they got done during the summer is a crappy "coloring book" and some tweaks to a shitty web site. I bet they even had lots of meetings and discussions about that stupid coloring book. Yeah nice way to get more so-called "under represented" groups into tech. The whole premise of outreachy is bigoted, but seriously would be interesting to know if the sponsors are ok with this. Smells like some kind of scam.

                  Constructive criticism while keeping an open mind should always be welcomed. Spewing hate and negative opinions without clarification is what to be quiet about. If you aren't sure which it is, follow your mother's advice.
