Geek Girls Carrots Seattle #3

Geek Girls Carrots is a community for women interested in tech and startups. We bring together female developers, programmers, admins, analysts, application architects, graphic designers, IT managers, social media specialists, system architects, women with ideas for start-ups, computer science students, and anyone starting their adventure with technology. 

Our group is designed for women with passion, and hunger for knowledge. If this describes you, join us Wednesday, March 26th to learn, share, teach and meet new people!

This time we will try a little different meeting formula - first networking, then presentations r. Please remember that we start one hour earlier, at 6pm!

Agenda:

6:00 pm - networking

6:45 pm - Welcome and Geek Girls Introduction by the  Organizer Kamila Stepniowska

6:50 pm – “Pitching time” - one minute for your idea!*

7:00 pm - Ashleigh Baumgardner "What's in a tweet? " 

8:00 pm - After party (Rock Bottom,[masked]th Ave.) 

* If you have an idea to start a project, you would like to share an  idea you are excited about, or share a project problem you would like to solve – “pitching time” is the moment when you can do that! Just send us ([masked]) one slide presentation about it. We will send you some useful tips how to prepare for a pitch and we will give one minute to present it during pitching time. 

"What's in a tweet?" by Ashleigh Baumgardner:

As a Software Engineer on the Data Team at Simply Measured it's my job to build and maintain the platforms we use to gather data. That data includes posts, comments, likes and enrichments from a dozen different API's and is on the scale of millions of items per day. Processing at this volume is a fun challenge and I'm looking forward to sharing a bit about how we make it happen. In addition to that I'll be talking about my history with computer science and how I went from computational physics, to bioinformatics, to being a vagabond and finally to being a full time software engineer. Spoiler alert - bikes, maps and elevation profiles will abound.

If you have any questions or suggestions please contact us:

See you soon !

    Great group of women. Absolutely LOVED what I heard of Ashleigh's talk (I'm super into bike-touring, and stoked to share her GitHub mapping repo with some other tech / bike nerds.) Sorry I had to sneak out early!

    As Sanda wrote, Ashleigt, Amy, Lindsay thank you for last night! I had real pleasure to hear your presentation and pitches! Elizabeth, thank you for hosting us in Ada! This time we prepared the short questionary about the meeting, topics which you would like to hear and Code Carrots programing workshops which we would like to create in Seattle. I would be grateful for filling out, it would give us feedback!

    Wonderful. This was my first meetup with this group and I didn't know what to expect. It turned out to be super helpful and interesting. Dinner at Rock Bottom afterwards was a great way to get to know some of the other attendees.
