KDE will – for the first time this year – participate in the “Outreach Program for Women”. This was originally started by GNOME, but has also other participating organisations like Wikimedia, Mozilla, Fedora and others.

With KDAB as our sponsor we will be offering one internship. This is in no way only limited to coding, but includes user experience design, graphic design, documentation, web development, marketing, translation and other types of tasks needed to sustain a Free Software project.

The deadline for task submission is March 27. Please all in the KDE Community, suggest suitable tasks on our wiki page and volunteer to mentor. Feel free to contact me or Lydia for more information.

Prerequisites for application: Any woman who has not previously participated in an Outreach Program for Women or Google Summer of Code internship is welcome to apply, provided she is available for a full-time internship during this time period. This program is open to anyone who identifies as a woman regardless of gender presentation or assigned sex at birth. Genderqueer and genderfluid people are welcome to apply.

The application deadline for candidates is already on May 1st, while the program runs from June 17 to September 23.

    I’m very glad to see KDE participating in this wonderful program! I’ve been watching the OPW in the GNOME community, hoping other organizations would realize its importance. So yeah, go KDE!

    As per gnome.org/opw “Application period for the upcoming round will open on March 27, the application deadline will be May 1, and the internships will take place from June 17 to September 23. ” But, nothing related to task submission deadline of 27Mar that you mentioned??

    The interns application starts on March 27, so by that time the tasks need to be there, and the deadline for interns application is on May 1st.
