Linuxchix New Zealand set up
Posted on 26-Feb-2007 23:20. | Tags Filed under: News.



Women who like Linux now have a community organisation in New Zealand to support them: LinuxChix NZ.

Open too for women and men who want to support women in computing, LinuxChix NZ is a new chapter of an international LinuxChix community. Globally, membership ranges from complete novices to experienced users, and includes professional and amateur programmers, system administrators, Linux kernel developers, database administrators, QA testers, technical writers, and computer journalists.

Linuxchix is run by women and for women. Membership is free - the only requirement is that members be polite and be helpful. The New Zealand chapter of LinuxChix wants to connect women working in IT with each other, and also contribute to the Free and Open Source Software movement. Group activities include support forums, mentoring, training courses, social gatherings as well as Linux install fests.

According to the group women make up approximately 42% of New Zealand's IT Industry, but once data entry and unskilled work are excluded this drops to somewhere nearer 15%.
