Lightbend and Play Framework are proud to be participating in Outreachy, a program that works with open source projects to provide internships to members of groups traditionally underrepresented in tech.
We are pleased to announce that Lousanna Cai was selected to work on Play Framework for the December 2017 - March 2018 round of Outreachy.
We were happy to see so many qualified applicants this year for Outreachy and really appreciate the contributions of the many who applied. In the end, we chose Lousanna because we believe her contributions stood out the most. We were impressed by how quickly she got up to speed with the project and by the high quality of her work. We are looking forward to having her on the team.
Lousanna will be working on a new module directory for Play, which will showcase the incredible community around Play and help users to better share and locate third-party modules to serve their needs. This is a much-needed improvement and we are thrilled to have her working on this.
Please join me in welcoming Lousanna to the project!
