Open Fest: Women in Open Source

The Gender Gap is one of the most talked topic since forever, and still a Gap. Where are women in Open Source? Why the gap is so big? Women participation in open technology and culture is very important so we should all pay more attention. This talk was focused on the large steps we can take to reduce this gap. Also we shared out experience at our hackerspace in Tirana, Albania since we have lots of women there.
