Women in Open Source Penguin

The SCALE 6X Women In Open Source conference continues last year's work in encouraging women of all ages to participate in the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) community. The WIOS conference will be held on Friday, February 8th, prior to the 6th Annual So Cal Linux Expo.

As a woman, if you've had experience working on an Open Source project, or in deploying Open Source software, please join us in sharing your accomplishments, success stories, and advancements.
