Portland Linux/Unix Group: Diversity in Open Source: What We Can Do
PSU Maseeh Engineering Building

Who: Jennifer Davidson
What: Diversity in Open Source: What We Can Do
Where: PSU, 1930 SW 4th Ave. Room FAB 86-01 (Lower Level)
When: Thursday, October 2nd, 2014 at 7pm
Why: The pursuit of technology freedom
Stream: http://pdxlinux.org/live/

If you're involved in tech and/or open source, you know the community suffers from a lack of diversity. The big question is: Why? Even more powerful is: What can each of us do to build a community that is welcoming of contributors from all backgrounds? Jennifer Davidson will shed light on these issues and discuss what ChickTech is doing locally in Portland. Expect actionable steps we can take as a community to increase diversity in tech.

Jennifer Davidson is a User Experience Researcher and Designer at Intel. She received a PhD in Computer Science with an emphasis in Human-Computer Interaction from Oregon State University in June 2014. She is the Interim Board President for ChickTech (http://chicktech.org). Her passions include studying open source communities, designing software that works for humans, and doing outreach to build women in tech communities. Jennifer has given talks at OSCON, Open Source Bridge, Open Source Systems, Code n' Splode, and many academic conferences.

Many will head to the Lucky Lab NW at 1945 NW Quimby after the meeting.

Code 'n' Splode: FOSS Outreach Program for Women (OPW)
FlightStats

Topic: FOSS Outreach Program for Women (OPW) Speaker: Sarah Sharp

For the last three years, the GNOME Foundation has worked to improve the number of women involved in open source, by offering internships through the FOSS Outreach Program for Women (OPW). Women and genderqueer or genderfluid interns receive $5,000 for working for three months on one of 16 different open source projects.

The Linux kernel (a notoriously unfriendly project) joined OPW for the first time this year, and the response was really amazing:

41 women applied for 6 Linux kernel internships. 18 of those women submitted at least one kernel patch.

In 13 days, 374 patches were submitted, and 137 patches were accepted.

Diff stat for accepted patches: 105 files changed, 3889 insertions(+), 4872 deletions(-)

Sarah Sharp will talk about OPW, in order to encourage women to apply for the next round of OPW, and explain how more experienced women can become OPW mentors.

Code 'n' Splode: Techy Sexagenarians
FlightStats

Topic: Techy Sexagenarians; Speaker: Jen Davidson

What are you going to do when you retire? Contribute to open source software, right? Do all those side-projects you never get around to doing while working? The first generation of programmers are retiring right now, and I plan to examine their experience contributing to open source software. Most open source communities are notoriously homogeneous, dominated by 20-30something white males. Through my research, I hope to provide open source communities with a proposal for involving older adults. During the talk, I'll go over my research goals, how I plan meet those goals, and discuss some of the human-computer interaction research methods that I'm using. If you want to know more about life as a computer science/human-computer interaction PhD student, we can talk about that too.

**Note: Code-n-Splode (CnS) is a women-focused group. All self-identified women and genderqueer persons are invited to attend and participate, and men are welcome as the guest of a female participant.
