503 views

Published on

Session Summary:
Women are the Invisible Pink Unicorns of Open source software, and to enable input from a wide area of contributors women are in a key position. BoF: Women of MeeGo collects women and other minority members contributing or even just interested in MeeGo and related open source projects to check what the status quo of MeeGo is and how we can draft more people of any gender, race, ability and social background to make MeeGo rock!

Session Abstract:
this free form discussion is mainly about women and other minority members (disabilities, languages, you name it!) in MeeGo and the surrounding open source projects. Some topics of discussion could include

Accessibility of the Community,
Current community guidelines,
Hic sunt leones - unchartered and unventured waters of MeeGo
future roadmap
