GSoC and Outreachy are ON!

Hi all,

GNOME was accepted for GSoC and is participating in Outreachy! \\o//

Thanks to mentors who've already listed GSoC project ideas! We currently only have four GSoC ideas, which
are still open to new applicants, so please consider adding your idea if you are willing to mentor this
summer [1].

Because we only usually have a few participants in Outreachy, we only offer projects that are most
strategic for GNOME through it. These include, but are not limited to, projects in the area of privacy [2],
developer experience, GTK+ [3], core experience, core applications [4], and web infrastructure.
Please add your coding and non-coding ideas for Outreachy on its page [5]. You can put the same coding idea
both on GSoC and Outreachy ideas pages.

In the next 3 weeks, prospective applicants are asked to work with mentors on making relevant
contributions and putting together a project proposal [6] [7].

Everyone, please help us spread the word about both opportunities by encouraging people personally to
apply, posting on social networks, sending the information to the university departments and
technology groups, and posting the flyers on university campuses or handing them out at conferences.
Sample e-mail, sample social network updates, and flyers are available on the spread the word page [8].

Thanks,
Marina

Gnome at DORS/CLUC 2015 in May, Zagreb, Croatia - an invitation

Dear all,

Following a brief conversation at FOSDEM with Gnome booth staff, I would
like to invite Gnome to attend FLOSS conference in Zagreb, Croatia. The
conference will take place from 18th – 20th of May.

We would very much like to have a Gnome booth at the venue, and
potentially a Gnome related keynote. 

In hope there will be interest in this, some more details are below, and
of course I can provide additional info if required. 

***

DORS/CLUC is the oldest (22nd this year) and biggest conference on free 
software and open source in Croatia and region.
Organization is led by two croatian NGOs: Croatian Linux Users' 
Association HULK (www.linux.hr) and Croatian Association for Open 
Systems and Internet HrOpen (www.hropen.hr).

DORS/CLUC has always been a meeting place of hackers, small and medium 
businesses and enterprises that share experiences and possibilities they
create. Last few years we had between 250 – 300 attendees per
conference, e.g. 2014.dorscluc.org/en.

This year conference will take place at Faculty of Electrical
Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb (www.fer.hr/en). There
are over 3000 students and around 500 employees on the Faculty. And that
made us eager to put booths area this year, accessible to everyone;
conference attendees, students and other visitors.

Kind regards,

--
