Free & Open Source Software Projects Booth

At Grace Hopper we will have a booth to represent Free and Open Source Software projects. The idea is to create a place where women can come ask about free software and how to get involved.

We need your help! Even if only for an hour or two. You don't need to be an expert. Just talk about your experience in your project(s) and point people in the right direction.

  • Please sign up for a slot - even if only one!
  • First try to make sure that each slot has at least one person and then feel free to double up - it's always nice to have some one to talk to on booth duty.
  • Also feel free to break down the shifts differently. If for example you can only do an hour, break a shift in two.

Then please send an email to Stormy, stormy -dot- peters -at- gmail -dot- com, so we can let you know if anything changes. Thanks!
