Jun 2019

Open Source projects are a medium to expose engineers to innovation, other cultures and fast-track ways to learn more about the new leading technologies. Representation in the world of Open Source contribution has the opportunity to benefit not only the participants but the broader society. While there are many intersectional aspects to diversity, this talk will focus on diversity of region of contributors and gender as these are easier to analyze and we have more personal experience with them. Together we will explore data from projects in the Apache Software Foundation, Linux Foundation, and Jupyter family of projects.
