Q&A format

The chat format is explained here:


The Outreachy Twitter account will ask a series of questions (Q1 - Q5). Applicants are encouraged to reply to these questions using A1 - A5 and the hashtag #OutreachyChat

Our first topic is for potential applicants: "What questions do you have for mentors, past interns, or organizers?"

This is a great chance to get your questions answered! We encourage you to prepare your questions in advance.

You are also welcome to tweet questions to mentors and past Outreachy interns who participate in the Twitter chat. This is a great way to get to know mentors for the May 2022 internship cohort!

We highly encourage you to participate. No question is too small or too simple. We are here to help.
