    I really enjoyed the launch party... and the cocktails afterwards! On a slightly different note - a contact of mine is looking to make connections with Melbourne based female tech entrepreneurs who are coders. I know many of you match that description! If you're interested in knowing more please send me an email at [masked]

      Hi All, sorry as the meetup explains we don't offer refunds. We also do not offer ticket swaps. We don't yet have an employee to manage the administration of this and we all work full-time. If we say yes once then we may end up with loads of ticket swap requests and we don't have capacity to manage that. With the event less than a week away and us all so busy organising finishing touches on the launch of Girl Geek Academy this won't be possible.

    Hi everyone, Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it now. Let me know if anyone would like the ticket :)

    Sooo, I'm a content marketer/CRO gal but I'm no coder. Is this for female techs only? I'm 'trying' to teach myself how to tweak Wordpress sites at the moment but that's about the extent of my tech side! :)

    1 · April 26, 2014

    • Tammy B.

      Hi Mel, this is for all women that are interested in any kind of technology whether that be coding, social media, content marketing online or anything else! We run workshops and programs on many different topics. Hope to see you at the launch!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
