Weekly WiT (5/3/17): Jigyasa Grover, Women Who Code, and Avni Khatri, Kids on Computers

Woman in Tech of the Week (5/3/17)

Jigyasa Grover, Director, Women Who Code, and Avni Khatri, President, Kids on Computers

Open source is more than technology. It’s a mentality and a set of principles that may, in fact, be applied to realms outside of technology. Open-source technology and philosophy together may be a potent combo for attacking real-world issues, as this year’s Red Hat’s Women in Open Source Award winners suggest.

“It’s a way of doing things and thinking about the world with transparency, using the best ideas, innovating rapidly,” said DeLisa Alexander, executive vice president and chief people officer at Red Hat Inc.

Alexander joined awards winners Jigyasa Grover and Avni Khatri in an interview with Rebecca Knight (@knightrm), host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s mobile live streaming studio, during this week’s Red Hat Summit in Boston, Massachusetts.

Grover is director of Women Who Code in Delhi, India, and the winner of Red Hat’s 2017 Academic Award. Kharti, president of Kids on Computers, took home this year’s Community Award.

This week, theCUBE spotlights Jigyasa Grover and Avni Khatri in our Women In Tech feature.
