My name is Tarah Wheeler Van Vlack; I've been posting here for some time--mostly when I need hardware help, since I'm a web dev
If you folks haven't already stumbled across it, I'm one of the LadyCoders running the Get Hired seminar for 40 women in Seattle in October. Sometimes, women are not very good at communicating with men in interviews, and we are going to provide some education and mentorship for these ladies, as well as filming the whole thing as a training DVD.
Liz and Lorraine use Macs; I'm the Kubuntu devotee in the group. It is certain that my desktop will be shown more than theirs on our DVD, if theirs are shown at all. See, we have no worries about whether showing a Kubuntu desktop on a widely released DVD will constitute a problem with intellectual property. One of the exercises will involve these ladies finding projects to work on in order to beef up their resumes, and I would like to take this chance to pay a little back to the community that makes my OS. I specifically would like some suggestions for Github-hosted projects that are devoted to improving Kubuntu and KDE. I may have some converts during this seminar, and I'd like to give them some direction towards the best projects for them to contribute to.
