Diversity in Open Source Workshop
Diversity in Open Source
Sunday September 30, 2012
Champaign Room (2nd floor of the Hyatt)
11 am - 3 pm
Have you ever felt that who you are has had an effect on your ability to join or contribute to an Open Source community? Have you noticed that people are treated differently based something other than their contributions? They say "On the internet, nobody knows you're a dog." What happens when they find out?
Join us for a day of encouraging diversity in the Open Source world. A mix of talks and open discussion will help attendees identify biases and learn ways to break down barriers, invisible or blatant.
Suggested talks and discussion points welcome.
Brunch will be provided
