Ladieslunchcon is - an open invite, completely informal, group of ladies interested in technology, hacking, security, or just plain old conversation, who come together and enjoy each others' company
Women of all attributes -- assembled, tagged or developed - are warmly welcomed!
The idea for ladieslunchcon came about at a novahackers meeting; it seemed appropriate for the novahackers ladies to get together for lunch at this past derbycon.
We decided to make it open invite, tweet it out (look for #ladieslunchcon or @ladieslunchrecon) and to invite other attendees.
From the original 4 attendees, we ended up with a group of 13 amazing ladies.
Everyone had a good time, and one of the things that came out of it was that the ladies who attended knew more people, had a better time at the event, made friendships/business contacts that will hopefully outlast the event, and had conversations about everything from science and tech to our pets, significant others, and personal interests.
We did a second #ladieslunchcon at BsidesDC - with 10 attendees. Mimosas were consumed, conversations were had, friendships were made - we knew it was something worth keeping going. The third #ladieslunchcon, at @SkyDogCon - clinched it - we knew it was something to keep.
