Mary Gardiner resigns from coordinator role

The general membership of Linuxchix was saddened today by the news that Linuxchix coordinator, Mary Gardiner, resigned from her post as coordinator.

Mary is a popular, long-time contributor to Linuxchix, and we are all going to miss her leadership very much. We hope that she will continue to contribute her considerable talents to the group.

Mary has many achievements to show for her short tenure: a Website overhaul, development of a skilled and expanded sysadmin team, and a large number of new volunteers serving in various roles.

We wish Mary the very best.

Kernel IRC chat, June 12 2007, 12:01am (0001) UTC

Welcome! Please come join us for a LinuxChix "The Guru is In" chat on IRC. The topic is "Everything you ever wanted to know about kernel development but were afraid to ask," featuring long-time kernel developer Valerie Henson.

This is your chance to ask questions about kernel development and related topics and get polite helpful answers immediately. Want to know why coding style is such a big deal? How people get into kernel development? If drivers are really that hard to write? If Rusty Russell is as funny in real life as he is online?
