I’m happy to report that the 22nd article in the open source column of IEEE Computer has been published.

PublicationComputer vol. 55, no. 12 (December 2022), pp 145-149

Abstract: Women are underrepresented in open source projects, causing them to lose career and skill-development opportunities. This article highlights the challenges that women face being a part of open source projects and lists a set of strategies that communities can implement to mitigate these issues.

As always, the article is freely available (local copy).
