Peer tube is another service on the Fediverse. That allows you to upload video and share this with other. The difference is there are no adverts and fewer limitations on what you can upload. You still need to stay within the law though. Having used this I found it pretty straight forward and it transcoded my video in a few hours. As stated above this is all based on Free / Libre software.

Fedora : How to help
Like any project, help is always welcome, there is a similar too to that I posted with relation to Libreoffice, but for anyone looking to help with Fedora.
Fedora : How to help
Fedora creates an innovative, free, and open source platform for hardware, clouds, and containers that enables software developers and community members to build tailored solutions for their users.
Repl.it is a web based development environment. This gives you an instant IDE to develop your code and projects. It has recently been updated so that it is multiplayer by default so you can collaborate in real time with fellow developers / hackers, which should help increase productivity and or learning / teaching potential of this platform. Great work to the Development team.
Please see https://repl.it/ for more information and to sign up.
LibreOffice : How to help
LibreOffice is a well featured free and open source office suite. As with any project contributors are welcome and encouraged to get involved. There are lots of different jobs to do, so not everything is about coding. Please see the following link for more information, and see how you may be able to help.
Google Summer of Code March 2019 update
Update on this round of Debian / Google summer of code applications.
Debian is dedicated to increasing the diversity of contributors to the project and improving the inclusivity of the project. We strongly believe working towards these goals provides benefits both for people from backgrounds that are currently under-represented in free software, and for the wider movement, by increasing the range of skills, experiences and viewpoints contributing to it.
Last week the NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre) in the UK issued their latest publication which gives advice on how to configure Ubuntu 18.04 LTS in accordance with their security best practices.

Anyone who has been following the list recently will be aware of Tom, from Holsworthy who has been setting up a Coderdojo in Holsworthy.
We wish Tom best of luck with this venture and hope that it grows and does well, which I am sure it will.
