Opening Doors to Open Source (Jigyasa Grover)

According to a recent survey by Github, only 4 % of open source participants & ideators are women and/or non-binary.

This might be due to the fact that women especially find it intimidating to get started with contributing to open source. The talk will answer questions, throwing light on the issues that women usually have. It aims at introducing the audience to the world of FOSS and elaborate the vast range of opportunities ranging from coding to documentation, design, outreach and research. The talk aspires to inspire budding girl developers and showcase women who’ve made significant contributions to technology.

This session is held on in Talks B
