New Delhi: Three Indian women made it to the list of finalists after taking part in the 2016 ‘Women in Open Source’ competition, organised by Red hat. The finalists in the academic category include three women from India who are full-time students pursuing computer science and engineering degrees. Now in its second year, the ‘Women in Open Source Award’ was created to honor women who make important contributions to open source projects and communities, or make innovative use of open source methodologies. The award features five finalists each in two categories: The Women in Open Source Academic Award for women who are enrolled in a college or university, and the Women in Open Source Community Award for women who work or volunteer on open source projects.
