I’m reaching out to draw your attention to the Grace Hopper Conference - Open Source Day event. It is scheduled for Friday, September 16th, 2022 from 8am to 3pm U.S. Pacific Time in an online format.

The organizers describe the event as "an all-day hack-a-thon at Grace Hopper Celebration in which participants of all levels contribute and learn about Open Source while working on projects designed to solve real-world problems”.

The OpenStack project has been participating in the event for a couple of years now to help new contributors to learn about the project and the community, and to work on their first issue to start their contribution journey with the project.

It could be a great opportunity for the StarlingX project as well to participate and with that raise awareness about the project and hopefully gain new contributors.

The sign-up period for projects is currently open and will close on __June 20__.

Requirements for participating projects:
* Projects participating in OSD must provide triaged issues (non-documentation and "good first issue" labeled)
* Have one or more (up to 3) project maintainers participate during the event to help attendees contribute to their project
** The OpenStack session usually has both core contributors from the project teams and additional experienced contributors to provide the best experience for students throughout the day. The overall number of experienced OpenStack mentors usually exceed the 3-person limit.

Responsibilities include:
* Introducing the project
* Answering project related questions
* Providing guidance to assigned mentors
* Helping attendees contribute to the project

Please let me know if the StarlingX project would like to grab this opportunity and sign up. Also please let me know if you have any questions before committing to this effort.
