I'm honored to be nominated for Red Hat's Women in Open Source award, along with Karen Sandler, Shauna Gordon-McKeon, Deb Nicolson, and Elizabeth Joseph. It's awesome to be along side some really outstanding women in FOSS. Go vote!

The open source diversity internships have a new home and a new name! FOSS Outreach Program for women is now Outreachy, and will move from the GNOME Foundation to the Software Freedom Conservancy.
 
Great news for women coming from #FOSDEM  ! +Karen Sandler made an exciting announcement during her speech:  Outreach Program for Women, - the program provided by #GNOME to increase women participation in FLOSS, is now Outreachy and will join the Software Freedom Conservancy, where Karen is the Executive Director, for the next round of internships.
The administration of the current round of internships will be completed by the GNOME Foundation and it will continue to provide infrastructure support for the program (websites, wiki, mailing lists) as a program partner.

Thanks to +Marina Zhurakhinskaya who spread the world!

+Mike Lothian Yes, we plan on extending the program, once the move is complete. Last round we had a pilot to allow alumni from the Ascend Project to apply for internships, and four of them were accepted as interns. http://ascendproject.org

Linux kernel OPW internships have been hugely successful this year. Applicants from last round got 551 patches accepted and 4 out of 11 past interns have jobs as Linux kernel developers. So it is with mixed, bittersweet feelings that I announce I will be stepping down as the coordinator for the Linux kernel OPW internships.  The program is running smoothly, and I find joy every day in watching the OPW Linux kernel interns learn and grow.  However, I am no longer a part of the Linux kernel community.  Julia Lawall, the maintainer of Coccinelle, will be stepping into the role of OPW kernel coordinator.

Fortunately, I’m not leaving the OPW program altogether.  I’ve agreed to step up to help Marina Zhurakhinskaya and Karen Sandler coordinate the larger OPW program, and I will be there to help Julia when she takes over as kernel coordinator in February 2015.

Thank you to everyone who mentored interns this last year (+Adrian Chadd, Bob Copeland, +Andy Grover, Nick Kossifidis, +Greg Kroah-Hartman+Paul McKenney, Pablo Neira, Julia LaWall, +Rik van Riel, +Luis Rodriguez, Josh Triplett, and +PJ Waskiewicz) and the Linux kernel internship sponsors for the last year, +Intel, +The Linux Foundation, +Linaro, and +Codethink Ltd.. Together, we can work to make the Linux kernel more diverse.
It's been a busy winter for the FOSS Outreach Program for Women (OPW). On October 13, 2014, seven (yes, seven!) of the former Linux kernel OPW interns presented their projects at LinuxCon Europe. From left to right, the OPW alumni are: Valentina Manea, Kristina Martšenko, Ana Rey, ...

At the first Intel OTC STSL conference last week, I gave a talk on how to get involved in the #Linux kernel.  It covers a lot of the "tribal knowledge" that you won't get just by reading the mailing list.  The Linux kernel community relies on scaling trust, and this presentation gives some tips on how to earn maintainers' trust.

https://01.org/stsl

STSL stands for Simposio de Tecnologias de Software Libre.  It was a one-day conference that Intel hosted in their new site in Guadalajara, Mexico.  We're hiring a lot of new open source developers and QA engineers at that site, so pass the word on if you know of good people:

https://01.org//about/jobs/gdl
An introduction to how the Linux kernel works: maintianers, scaling trust, and no regressions. This talk also gives tips to people who want to get involved with Linux kernel development, either through reporting bugs, reviewing code, or developing code.

This just got announced: Christoph Hellwig has filed a lawsuit against VMware for violating the GPL on the Linux kernel

Ally skills workshops are really helpful for learning how to support women and speak up against sexism. Thank you to the anonymous donor who donated $100k to the Ada Initiative!

I think there are not many women in tech because women are smart enough to know to avoid it.

A couple kernel developers (+Greg Kroah-Hartman and +Darren Hart) have asked me about resources for kids to get involved with either programming or electronics. I'm not a parent myself, but I am aware of a couple different projects.

I first learned about "squishy circuits" from this Ted talk on making conductive and non-conductive play dough:

http://www.ted.com/talks/annmarie_thomas_squishy_circuits?language=en

Apparently there's now a book as well:

http://www.amazon.com/Squishy-Circuits-Century-Innovation-Library/dp/1631377957

The same author +AnnMarie Thomas paired up with Leah Buechley, the creator of the Lilypad (a sewable Arduino used in wearables) to write a book called "Making Makers", on getting kids involved with electronics crafts:

http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920031949.do

There's a TEDx talk with the same title:

Making Makers: AnnMarie Thomas at TEDxTC

As an aside, the "One Screwdriver Per Child" suggestion reminded me of +Leslie Hawthorn's post "My Nerd Story: What You Say to Young Girls Matters":

http://www.linux.com/community/blogs/127-personal/758147-my-nerd-story-what-you-say-to-young-girls-matters

As a child, I always had access to my dad's tools and my mother's art supplies.  One weekend I would be using the hacksaw to cut branches for my fort in the woods, and the next weekend I would be sculpting with Fimo.  My grandpa gave me a pocket knife for my 12th birthday, and I happily whittled away (even after badly cutting myself a couple times).  In high school, I took a class to build functioning computers out of donated parts and machines.  I was never told not to take things apart or tinker with things.  Both parents were strong creators, and I was encouraged to make things.  The freedom to create, to tinker, to learn and discover, has helped make me who I am today.

How will you make a maker?
In a zippy demo at TED U, AnnMarie Thomas shows how two different kinds of homemade play dough can be used to demonstrate electrical properties — by lighting up LEDs, spinning motors, and turning little kids into circuit designers.

I'd like to propose maintainers try an experiment when getting larger patches from newcomers.  Instead of procrastinating about reviewing the contribution until you have a large block of time to plow through it, I propose breaking up the review into three phases:

1. Is the idea behind the contribution sound?
2. Is the contribution architected correctly?
3. Is the contribution polished?

I was experimenting with this process when I was the xHCI driver maintainer, and I think it resulted in less newcomer patch bounce (i.e. someone sends a patch and then they don't revise it after I ask for changes).  More details on the process are in my blog post.  I encourage other maintainers to try it out!

+Sarah Sharp definitely - indeed if the code is clear I don't tend to worry too much about the description and perhaps just say "I'd have liked to have seen..." rather than going back at all.

Introduction
I'm very passionate about open source and open hardware.  I've been running Debian/Ubuntu on my laptops since 2004.  I'm a Linux kernel hacker, and I'm the author/maintainer of the Linux USB 3.0 host controller driver. I'm getting into Mesa development and ChromeOS.

I occasionally dabble in Android app development and Arduino hardware projects. My other passion is gardening.  Sometimes the two passions combine, and I create cool Arduino projects to automate my garden.

I'm a bicyclist, and have been car-free since 2006.  I travel the world, and occasionally post pictures of said travels.

I'm married.  I will block people who are obviously chasing tail. I also reserve the right to block people who make sexist, racist, homophobic, ableist, or misogynist statements, or any other form of repressive speech.
