Welcome to OWOOT!
Oceania Women of Open Tech (OWOOT) is a regional organisation for women living in Oceania, including Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, aimed at providing ways for women living in Oceania to meet each other, talk about, and get involved in Open Source software, open hardware, free culture, and related things.
OWOOT welcomes women interested in open technology at any level of experience. Others are also welcome to join OWOOT, as long as they understand that its purpose is "supporting women in open technology".
In an effort to get more women involved in Free Software, the GNOME project is
sponsoring several internships for women from December 12, 2011 to March 12,
2012. The application deadline for the program is October 31.
The Haecksen miniconf to be held on the 16th January 2012 at linux.conf.au in
Ballarat, Victoria, Australia, is calling for participation, particularly
speakers and panellists.
Please submit proposals by 30th September.
With huge recent increases in the number of women speaking in the
linux.conf.au main program, this year, the Haecksen miniconf is moving away
from general technical talks by women and towards discussing and
highlighting activities and events supporting women in open source.

We're starting a new online course: Beginning Programming in Python.
It will be held on the courses mailing list: subscribe to that list to join.
It will probably be a short course, 4-5 weeks; but it may be extended depending on interest.
The course is free and open to both women and men. Standard LinuxChix rules apply: Be polite, be helpful. And do the homework. :-)
