Come learn about the great work our kernel interns have accomplished! Outreachy (formerly OPW) provides a 3-month paid internship for women, trans men, genderqueer people, and all Ascend Project participants to work on an open source project.

This panel will present the program and this year's projects, as well as discussions with interns from 2013 who continue to work in open source. Elena Ufimtseva worked on vNUMA for XenProject, and now works for Oracle on the XenProject PVH guest model. Lidza Louina worked on staging drivers, and now works on the kernel for Oracle. Lisa Nguyen worked on the Xen block system, and now works on power management for Linaro. Greg KH will provide perspective on being a mentor.

The Linux kernel Outreachy coordinator, Julia Lawall, will provide more info on how mentors can get involved with Outreachy, and how companies can sponsor Outreachy interns.
