One of the great things in the GNOME development community is the level of women involvement and participation.
As this is the Euro 2012 summer, it would be difficult to get the same contribution from the male developers, and GNOME Foundation decided to organize an Outreach Program for Women internships that will take place from May 21 through August 20, 2012.
Well…Euro 2012 is not the official reason, but anyway! Let’s have a look on what is going with some of the women that got accepted and have already started working on their respective projects.
Marta Maria Casseti has been very busy the last 10 days writing developer documentation pages for Python
Monica Kochofar is helping in the writing of developer documentation for the C programming language
Riko Yamada has been working on the GUPnP for the past two weeks, and from what I read on her blog she seems to like it. She already fixed a bug, and is now working on the replacement of the multi-cast socket code in gssdp with the newly available function in GLib-2.32
GNOME Women outreach program has accepted 10 women for this summer, and 5 more are accepted on projects under Google Summer of Code. This is 15 new women GNOME contributors and members of a free and open community!
Wogue will keep an eye on the work of GNOME Women, and keep the news from the “beautiful” side of GNOME coming…
