The GNOME Foundation is thrilled to welcome the Software Freedom Conservancy to its 2012 Outreach Program for Women. The Outreach Program for Women seeks to engage women in the development, documentation and general improvement of open source and free software.
The GNOME Foundation is pleased to announce its latest round of the Outreach Program for Women Internships, for which it has been able to accept ten outstanding applicants. GNOME’s efforts are made possible by the strong sponsorship that the program has received from free software companies and organizations committed to increasing the involvement of women in technology.
The GNOME Foundation has admitted 10 interns to its Outreach Program for Women, an initiative that encourages women's participation in the GNOME Desktop Project, one of the two major desktop environments for Linux and UNIX desktops.
As the GNOME Project gears up to kick off a new Outreach Program for Women (OPW), Marina Zhurakhinskaya and Hanna Wallach look back at the Women’s Summer Outreach Program (WSOP) from 2006. Marina follows up with the participants to see what they learned and how OPW can benefit from past experience.
The curtains are up on GUADEC 2014, and the first keynote was delivered by Jim Hall. Jim is the Director of Information Technology at Morris, University of Minnesota, and he presented his work on usability in GNOME. We took some time to talk to Jim about his keynote and about his research on GNOME.
Nowadays many designers are interested in user experience rather than usability.
With the summer coming closer, the GNOME Foundation are excited to announce applications are open for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) and Outreach Program for Women.
