Ubuntu Open Week, a series of IRC (Internet Relay Chat) based workshops, is happening Wednesday May 2nd through Friday May 4th:
This is an event that has evolved over time and we have had sessions about the Ubuntu Women project several times over the years. Our early sessions were essentially “how to treat women in your community” sessions that sought to discuss some of the problems many women have faced when getting involved with open source and help members of the community recognize that women are participating and how to treat us with respect.
These days, the problems many women face in open source are well-known and documented, and during our last session run by Amber Graner for the Lucid release in 2010 she moved the approach to be more of a status update on the project itself.
On Friday at 16:00 UTC I will be continuing the example that Amber set by hosting a session about our project and outlining some of our current projects, goals completed this cycle and some ideas for the future.
Just like for Career Days, to participate you’ll want to join #ubuntu-classroom and #ubuntu-classroom-chat on irc.freenode.net, this is also available via web-based chat.
