Only about 1.5% of the people involved in open source are women, leaving us terribly underrepresented. In the Drupal world, we're up to a whopping
7% 10% 17%, which only gets us to awfully unrepresented. ;) This group is for anyone (male, female, or otherwise) who believes that we can do better and wants to help.
So if you:
- are a woman who needs some help/guidance in order to get (more) involved with Drupal and the Drupal community
- are a woman who wants to network and get to know other women involved in Drupal
- are anyone who has ideas on things we can do to help encourage women to participate in Drupal
...then this is the group for you. :)
Posting a bunch of the DrupalChix logo files here for posterity, so everyone can find and use them whenever they need!
I had to turn the big file from Naxoc into a .gz file to upload it here, but FYI it contains several .pngs in different colours plus on .eps file. This is the file "drupalchixlogos.tar_.gz"
Got the other set from Rainbreaw, which is the file "drupalchixlogos2.tar_.gz" - it has the two different versions of the Drupalchix logo that they created for LA Drupal. She says:
There have been a number of comments about how to find other women in Drupal. We're scattered around, but maybe not as much as we think. And it would be nice to know if there are other DrupalChix nearby. Maybe it could even lead to some regional DrupalChix get-togethers :-)Read more
Drupal 8 will ship with a fancy new template engine (Twig) and a simpler theme layer. In this webinar, our speaker will show you some goodies from Twig and give you a walkthrough on how to get started with it.
He will also talk about the major problems that people were facing in working with Drupal 7 and what the community has done to make it better. This webinar will show - in both practical examples and on a broader scale - why Drupal 8 will make peace between backenders and frontenders.

Good morning all, I am planning on attending Drupalcon in May in LA. This will be my first Drupalcon. Although, I have created and maintain a Drupal 7 website for a client, my knowledge of Drupal is fairly basic. I'm really looking forward to moving my knowledge of Drupal to a new level. I would like to stay at the Weston Bonaventure hotel to get the most out of the conference. I am looking to share a room with a fellow Woman in Drupal. Anyone else looking to share a room? Thanks, Sheryl

I'm so relieved to have found this group... as a girl in tech it does get pretty lonely out there... I've been developing and maintaining sites with Drupal for about 4 years now, and am working hard founding a startup, a new platform built on Drupal.
I'm developing the Drupal site myself, doing pretty well on my own, but would love to ask some questions, and on Stackexchange and stackoverflow questions often die a slow and painful death. As a woman I feel like crying out for godsakesjustgimmeachance, its hard enough just being female here!!Read more
