As we all know, the presence of active women in the Open Source community is scarce. Last year, GitHub conducted an online survey in which they randomly selected 5,500 developers of open source projects, and found that only 3% of that population were female (crazy right?!?). The knowledge of that fact alone can be intimidating for other women to particpate in the open source community.
So this year for Women’s History Month, the Fission team decided to host the #WomenInOpenSourceHighlight series on social media, where we shined a light on amazing women in the Open Source field.
