Xen Project and Outreachy

The Xen Project Advisory Board will be sponsoring two interns for Round 10 of Outreachy (formerly known as the GNOME Outreach Program) which runs from May 25, 2015 to August 25, 2015. Outreachy helps people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software get involved. Our goal is to increase the participation of underrepresented groups in the Xen Project. It is an expansion of the very successful GNOME Outreach Program for Women and we are running the program in conjunction with GNOME and other prominent open source projects.
