Every month or so the OTW will be doing a Q&A with one of its volunteers about their experiences in the organization. The posts express each volunteer’s personal views and do not necessarily reflect the views of the OTW or constitute OTW policy. Today’s post is with Cosette, who volunteers as a coder for the Accessibility, Design, and Technology (AD&T) Committee.
How does what you do as a volunteer fit into what the OTW does?
As an AD&T coding volunteer, I work with the open-source code that powers AO3. Coders are recruited to fix bugs, write tests, and develop features. We also work side by side with testing volunteers, to ensure the changes we’ve made to the code won’t cause anything to catch fire.
