Hi all -
Thank you to DevBootCamp for sponsoring our PairUp last weekend!
Twilio, one of our most supportive sponsors, is holding their annual TwilioCon Sept. 17-19th - it starts tomorrow! We have a few more tickets we can give out *tonight*, so if you suddenly realize your next few days are open, let me know.
One of our members built an app to help you find coding buddies to pair program with. Try it out here: http://www.codermatch.me/
Google is offering grants to women interested in attending conferences on open source and engineering - currently accepting applications for Flossie (on open source) and Velocity (on performance). Check out the list and process here.
Google is organizing DevFestWest on October 18th and looking for speakers, apply here.
Ada Developers Academy is a new intensive school for programming in Seattle, just for women, and they’re now accepting applications.
Want to inspire kids to learn computation concepts? Sponsor this kickstarter projet for Robot Turtles: The Board Game for Little Programmers. (Okay, it’s already over-funded, but still! Isn’t that cool?)
The Shape of Design is a book on design that’s now available for free in various E-formats.
And now for our regularly scheduled links!...
