Ascend Project Final Presentation: The Open Source Experience

A participant of the inaugural Ascend Project describes the impacts of an early open source experience as she learns to freely and comfortably operate from the command line in both open and proprietary software systems.

"The potential to reconfigure the world with code is why I became a programmer. I feel honored and fortunate to emerge from Ascend as a an open source contributor with engineering and user experience chops. I am no longer afraid to break Windows or any operating system now, and that's a great feeling. I am available for hire, and I am ready to use the technical and skills that I have learned to help the open source community build more welcoming doors." Candida Haynes circa 2014
