Gnome outreach program for women internships, is a specialized effort to bring more women in to Gnome development for a few months, with the hope that the contributions and the development will happen equally from men and from women in the future.
This year’s program will begin in January 2 and finish at April 2, and the application forms are already available. This is the fifth time for GWO program and it is going to be exciting!
From today till the 3rd of December, you can check the organizations that participate to the program, what projects they offer/suggest and choose what fits your interests best. You will also need to make a small contribution to the project of your choice. It’s ok if you’re not a master in programming and coding. You will also find projects that need translations, manual editing, fixing little things and even artistic touches or creations and website designing.
