It’s been great to work with Frances on the site. It has become a much more collaborative open-source project with her leadership. I appreciate how she has made the project accessible to both the maintainers and new contributors. She is a great team member and I enjoy maintaining the project with her.

I’ve worked with Frances on techqueria, she’s leading our website project. We develop the website as an open source project, and she’s doing a great job at coordinating the contributions from all the members, developing a roadmap, creating issues, releases, code reviews; all in a very professional manner and with amazing results. It has been a very pleasant experience working together

07/01/19 Hi Frances! I just wanted to reach out and give you a big thank you for all that you do for this community. I’m so excited to see Techqueria start to reach its potential, and feel empowered to see a badass chica (YOU) take the lead on so many great initiatives. I do my fair share of volunteering with other remote/tech/slack groups, and I know it is A LOT of work. Nevertheless, you are a frontrunner for all of this greatness, so thank you! – Sal Ramirez
