Re: Rails Girls
Many thanks to Myriam for the heads-up.
First of all, may I congratulate Myriam and fellow volunteers at the first Rails Girls Galway - it was a very successful event with +60 enthusiastic and energetic female participants. One could hardly believe that there was a gender issue in free/open source software communities when seeing so many active women.
Just want to clarify that I did not co-found Debian women; I have been an observer of this group since its conception. This is a significant group - there are many interesting anecdotes on which one can draw when talking about social dynamics and gender issues in free/open source software communities. But, really, the honour and hard work of setting this group up and of keeping it going belong to Debian contributors and developers.
As always, comments are welcome. Cheers.
