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. :)
This group is specifically not for job postings, so please keep those off this list. Thanks.
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

This is SUPER cool. NCWIT and code.org are partnering in a Mother's Day campaign to show pictures of women coders, mother and daughter pairs, etc.
Let's make sure the amazing Women in Drupal are represented. Get your pictures of you, your daughters, you and your daughters, etc. coding away.
Feel free to share this information to as many women coders as you can.

I am curious, and wanting to get feedback from other women drupal developers. I am a back-end developer.

Even when I am introduced as the Lead Developer.Read more

I'm perplexed. I am editing two different sites that both have ckeditor. Both are in D6. I have it set on both sites so that when the user clicks on the image icon in the Body, they are able to successfully upload the image using the box that comes up, and set the different image properties, click OK, and then the photo appears in the Body. No problem there.Read more

"I am facing an extremely hard time coming up with a business model in order to sell myself as a viable Drupal developer. One thing that I am finding is that after getting to the final line of the interview process it is inevitably the person in charge of the hiring picks the coder. So what are your thoughts on that? My strengths are building sites that people can use, that content mangers can actually build, and the visuals are the enticing factor that lead to the content of the site. It is not in the code but the entire experience of visiting my site.Read more
