Join Lars Kurth as he hosts a panel of selected Google Summer of Code and/or Gnome Outreach Program for Women participants and mentors. This year, the Xen Project is mentoring 7 applicants (4 of which are women) on a number of different projects designed to spread open source skills and participation. We will explore what it is like to be a mentor or participant of GSoC and OPW for the Xen Project, why comparably so many women participate in the Xen Project, whether we have a good track record in retaining GSoC and OPW participants, whether we are increasing open source participation and what we can do better in future.
