This is a quick reminder that the Xen Project is again participating in Outreachy (formerly known as OPW/Outreach program for Women).
Outreachy is the successor of the Outreach Program for Women. Please see its page for the information about the May 2015 round of interships.
Outreach Program for Women has been helping women (cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people get involved in free and open source software. It provided a supportive community for beginning to contribute any time throughout the year and offered focused internship opportunities twice a year with a number of free software organizations. This work is continued by Outreachy, with the goal of expanding the program to more participants from underrepresented backgrounds.
Round 10 of Outreachy
The application deadline for interns is
March 24, 2015 April 7, 2015. For a list of projects for interns and more information on how to apply, check our Xen Project Outreachy portal.

Unfortunately the project has not been accepted for GSoC in 2015! However, there are several Xen related projects hosted in various mentoring organisations, such as
- Xen based Hypervisor in a Box @ Centos
- Xen guest support for OpenBSD @ Open BSD Foundation
- 3 Xen related projects @ Ganeti
Please apply to these projects using the normal GSoC application process.
