Hi yt-dev,

yt is working with NumFOCUS on a research project funded by the Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation to understand the barriers to participation that contributors, particularly those from historically underrepresented groups, face in the open-source software community. The research team would like to talk to new contributors, project developers and maintainers, and those who have contributed in the past about their experiences joining and contributing to yt.

Interested in sharing your experiences?

Please complete this brief “Participant Interest” form which contains additional information on the research goals, privacy, and confidentiality considerations. Your participation will be valuable to the growth and sustainability of diverse and inclusive open-source software communities. Accepted participants will participate in a 30-minute interview with a research team member.

Please do volunteer if you can--we would like yt to be as welcoming and diverse as possible, and this is a really great way we can work on our community!
