This year’s part 2 international fellowship is being done a little differently - it’s by invitation, and invitation is based on your forum contributions. This is both because I want to reward people that contribute to this community, and also because I think it will create a particularly healthy discussion group during the course.
Specifically, anyone with over 10 ‘likes’ in total is being invited to join the fellowship. In total, 864 people qualify. I have already added everyone that qualifies to the new forum I’ve created, and will shortly be notifying all those people through the forum. If you want to see if you qualified, here’s a link - if clicking on it takes you to the forum, then you’re invited: #part2-v3 . Thank you to all of you that have contributed!
We are also inviting members of groups representing various under-represented groups in tech - those invitations will go out shortly.
Whilst putting this together, I noticed that there are some truly outstanding community members that I wanted to highlight. So let’s do that! Here are the top 20 community members by total numbers of ‘likes’ received:
And here are the top 20 by “score” (which is a combination of likes, time spent reading that user’s posts, and number of replies to that user’s posts):
I’m so grateful to everyone who has contributed to this community - and especially to these people who have helped so many people.
PS: Please don’t reply with “yay I got in” or “why didn’t I get in” posts, since that will get pretty cluttered pretty quickly! And please don’t PM me asking why you didn’t get in either - everyone will be able to join the MOOC from June so please just be patient…
