Written by Michael Larabel in GNOME on 10 March 2015 at 05:28 PM EDT. 37 Comments
The ninth and latest round of GNOME's Outreach Program for Women (OPW) came to an end yesterday.

This latest round saw a few months of development from a variety of new contributors as outlined at this Wiki page. Among the projects participating were Debian, GNOME, the Linux kernel, Mozilla, oVirt, X.Org, and Xen. The projects for these various organizations ranged a great deal so check out the aforelinked listing for more details.

I'm still trying to find out the results from some of the projects, such as the first-ever X.Org OPW project, but so far I've not been able to find any conclusion. Those thinking about doing the OPW projects in the future can find various blog posts from some of the participants, such as here and here that were on Planet GNOME.

Those identifying as women that wish to apply for a future round of the program can find details on the Wiki page with GNOME OPW recently having been renamed to Outreachy. Meanwhile for all student developers out there it's time to start thinking about applying for GSOC 2015.
