The Outreachy program provides internship to work in Free and Open Source
Software. This year I've proposed two projects as part of the GNOME project and
we've two interns working for three months, so we'll have a lot of improvements
in the following months!
The Linux App Summit (LAS) is a great event that bring together a lot of
linux application developers, from the bigger communities, it's organized by
GNOME and KDE in collaboration and it's a good place to talk about the Linux
desktop, application distribution and development.
