Getting Involved in Open Source Software

Here’s a presentation I gave at the Girl Geek Dinners in Milan on October 24, 2008, with Bruna Gardella. There’s a version in Italian, too.

Some highlights from the presentation:

  • What is Open Source (OS)
  • Why Open Source
  • Open Source in the world
  • The Girl Geek and the Open Source World
  • How to Contribute
  • Appendix A: Some Open Source Alternatives for Proprietary Software

Get a squad who will do it all: fill your cup whether it be coffee, wine, or soul; who hold a mirror to your face to make you stronger and to get that spinach out of your teeth; who do Friday night Body Pump and walk 10 miles through the city the next day; who make you laugh and who make you set goals to enrich your life (and hold you to them). #bffs #4bs
Meal planning for the week - done. And a little meal prep by roasting 5 trays of squash (remember my garden harvest pic?) and sweet potatoes. And sausages, and onions. And instant pot spaghetti squash. Lots of leftovers for lunches and to remake in the following days. Do you meal plan?

Portland! It was super quick and full of meetings with lovely colleagues as I head back to work soon, and so much delicious #espresso. I have to get back here so, so soon to properly see the city.
Just posted the template I use for year-end reflection and goal setting. Let me know if you end up using it! Link in profile. #goals #goalsetting #newyearsgoals
