The Ubuntu Women Month of Making
This competition has come to an end, see below for submissions and winners!
Do you make things? The Ubuntu Women team is running a competition to find outstanding projects made by women and connected in some way to Ubuntu. Write about what you have done (with pictures) and email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will publish it on the Ubuntu Women team blog. We will take a fairly broad interpretation of "making things" they could be physical things or more abstract, and we will accept fairly tenuous links to Ubuntu. The deadline for submissions was Friday, October 14th. Some examples of what you might make would include
Neat new applications running on Ubuntu
Cookies, Cakes or Cocktails with an Ubuntu theme
Robots programmed or designed on Ubuntu
Arduino powered circuits designed and programmed on Ubuntu
Something musical or artistic with Ubuntu tools
Something utterly different to surprise and delight us
We are looking for stuff created by women. Collaboration is allowed; we won't enforce strict exam conditions, but it should be something that you can in good conscience call your own work. The maker should submit her own work.
The following have been received by email@example.com and published:
