Here is a summary of the impressive accomplishments of women who worked on GNOME and Twisted as interns from May to August 2012. Thanks to them and to their mentors for making it such a successful round!
We had 10 GNOME Outreach Program for Women interns.
Radina Matic wrote extensive user documentation for Getting Things GNOME!, wrote blog posts for it in a role of a community manager, and created a design for a new website. Overhauled documentation for GTranslator, using documentation writing steps such as creating an information plan, prototyping topics, and diagramming the navigation. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
Fabiana Pedreira Simões created wireframes for a new design for the Cheese webcam application. To achieve that, she recorded current issues, surveyed relevant art, did user observations, outlined goals, and iterated over several design options. (1, 2)
Riko Yamada made updates to several GUPnP media-sharing modules to use the latest GLib and GStreamer APIs and upnp.org URLs. One of the updates fixed the crash when running “gupnp-dlna-info -v”. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Anna Zacchi ported GNOME Documents to use Gjs Lang.Class for class creation. Added a menu with open and print options to the document preview toolbar. Enabled an addition zoom-in key. Fixed an error that occurred on application startup. Wrote about her prior research on workflow and organization of documents as related to the GNOME project. (1, 2, 3)
We had 1 additional intern through a partnership with the Twisted project and the Software Freedom Conservancy.
We also had 5 GNOME interns and 1 Python Software Foundation Twisted intern in Google Summer of Code, who were encouraged and supported by the Outreach Program for Women.
