Xen Project and the FOSS Outreach Program

The Xen Project Advisory Board will be sponsoring one intern for Round 9 of the GNOME Outreach Program which runs from October 2014 to March 2015. The Outreach Program helps people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software get involved. This program is an expansion of the Outreach Program for Women (OPW) and this round is open to all participants of the Ascend Project (not just women) regardless of gender. Our goal is to increase the participation of underrepresented groups in the Xen Project. It is a continuation 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.
