Come learn about the great work our kernel interns have accomplished! Outreachy (formerly OPW) provides a 3-month paid internship for women and members of other underrepresented groups to work on an open source project.

This panel will present the program and this year's projects. Ebru Akagündüz will present her improvements to the THP collapse rate. Roberta Dobrescu will present her work on IIO staging drivers. Vatika Harlalka will present her work on the full dynamic ticks infrastructure. Aya Mahfouz will present her work on Orinoco network driver. Iulia Manda will present her work on kernel tinification. Cristina Opriceana will present her work on the IIO dummy driver. Tapasweni Pathak will present her work on assessing faults in recent Linux versions. Vaishali Thakkar will present her work on deprecated functions. Finally, Laurent Pinchart will present a mentor's perspective.
