Hi Christine,

   I'm not an ASF committer, just a member.  I work on a development team at Ft. Bragg, NC,
in support of an application that utilizes a Solr search engine.  I haven't programmed in
many years; I do requirements analysis, quality assurance and technical documents.  I'm interested
in supporting the panel, if you need someone, although I'm only on the user edge of open source.
 I can provide the perspective of a woman working in the warfighter environment, as a government
contractor.  I also had the privilege of knowing Admiral Hopper personally during the years
(1983-85) that I worked as a Computer Science instructor as the U.S. Naval Academy.

Best Regards,

-Lisa Weber

Hi Everyone

The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference is planned for 4th –
6th October 2017 in Orlando, Florida

More details can be found at the link below:


2017 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing<>
The 2017 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing will take place on Wednesday, October
4 through Friday, October 6.

Christine Poerschke from Apache Lucene is currently drafting a submission proposal for a one
hour open source panel discussion featuring ASF Committers talking about open source and life
beyond the getting started stage.

This is not intended to be a panel representing the ASF in an official sense, but a panel
of individuals talking about their experiences in open source and being at Apache.

So we are now urgently looking for volunteers from our ASF project communities. We will need
a moderator and 3 or 4 panelists (please note that no two people can be from the same organisation).
More details about the requirements can be found at the following link.


Submission Requirements - Grace Hopper Celebration<>
Each submission type has a unique set of requirements. Please review the one for your proposal
type. There are also general requirements for all types, except poster ...

The deadline for submissions is 8th March but we would like to get the submission in earlier
(e.g. end of day Monday 6th) to allow for any unexpected last minute problems.

Please let me know quickly if you are interested in participating as we are planning to hold
a 30 minute call to discuss the submission tomorrow (Wednesday 1st March at 18.00 UK Time)
