Women Lead In Open Source

October 15 4:00 pm-5:00 pm
332 A Level Three GRBCC
TRACK: Community

Systers has been involved in open source for many years, through mentoring our Systers in Python, Ruby on Rails and other open source programming. We have participated in Google Summer of Code as a mentoring organization for the past 6 years and as a result, help Systers who are not students learn open source technologies, software development life cycle and collaboration on global project teams. This panel consists of leaders in our community that are mentoring and managing large open source projects and programs. The panelists will discuss their projects, how open source has opened many opportunities for women to build their skills and collaborate with the broader open source community.
