I’m Silvia (aka Dolasilla). I’m part of the Ubuntu Italian team and together with Flavia Weisghizzi I gave birth to the Italian section of Ubuntu Women. But it’s not about this that I’m going to tell you. It’s about the collaboration I started with the GirlGeekDinner Italian team, particulary with the Milan team.
Girl Geek Dinners are dinners dedicated to women passionate for technology, in its broader meaning. The teams organizing these dinners in cities around the world are groups of women that in their free time organize events for women sharing the same passion for technology. Each event has a different theme, women experienced in the field give talks and share their knowledge.
The Milan Girl Geek Dinner Team, which I met during one of these dinners, also manages a national (Italian) web magazine: Girl Geek Life. In this magazine articles are written by women for women, and each article has a content related to technology.
Thanks to the collaboration I started with them, Ubuntu has a monthly article on this magazine. Every month (almost!) one of the girls of the UbuntuWomen-it team writes about a theme related to Ubuntu, in the form of a miniguide. I wrote one of the first articles, but of course I get more satisfaction in seeing the articles written by other women sharing the passion for Ubuntu! The page about this project is hosted on the wiki of Ubuntu-it:
