News from the GNOME Outreach Program for Women

GNOME has put out a press release that highlights the accomplishments of seven women in the Google Summer of Code program for GNOME along with eight participants in GNOME Outreach Program for Women internships. "The accomplishments of the women who participated in Google Summer of Code this year are impressive. For example, Nohemi Fernandez implemented a full-featured on-screen keyboard for GNOME Shell, which makes it possible to use GNOME 3.2 on tablets. Raluca Elena Podiuc added the ability to create an avatar in Empathy with a webcam. Srishti Sethi created four activities for children to discover Braille for the GCompris educational software. [...] There were also eight women who participated in the GNOME Outreach Program for Women internships during the same time period as Google Summer of Code. Five of them worked on documentation, creating new topic-based help for the core desktop, as well as for the Accerciser accessibility tool, Vinagre remote desktop viewer, Brasero CD/DVD burner, Cheese webcam application, and GNOME System Monitor."
