    Excellent event! Where/when can we find the videos?

    • Beth B.

      I got 9 videos on my camera -- I'm not sure how many videos the other camera was able to pick up. I'll process and edit them this weekend, and then we should put them up on the WWC youtube. I'll post here when we do.

      I have a couple on my camera and a few on my phone. There were 1 or 2 talks we missed due to technical difficulties, so apologies to those folks!

    This was so great!!!

    Cool, varied, welcoming, relevant to newbies yet with some technical tips

    I might be driving in for this event. Does anyone know where I can get parking (paid/unpaid: either works fine) ?

    January 10, 2013

    • Carina C. Z.

      Street parking is free after 6pm, and easy pickings on Mission between 6:00 and 6:30.

      Thanks!

    Carina - what's the format of the talks? I know ignite talks for example require 20 slides displayed for 20 seconds. Should we prepare slides for this event? Or spoken word only?

    1 · January 9, 2013

    • Michele T.

      The format of this is you have 5 minutes. You can do whatever you like with those 5 mins, slides or not, auto-advance or not. Most women make slides and advance them manually.

      January 9, 2013

    • Michelle W.

      great, thanks!

      January 9, 2013

  • Liz H.

    I would love to see what the other talks are going to be, beforehand!

    1 · January 8, 2013

    • Carina C. Z.

      Thanks for the nudge, Liz. Done :-)

    We're looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday for lightning talks! If you're planning to talk, please sign up at http://bit.ly/TLgiaW so we can hold a timeslot for you (and give you a nice intro to the audience). :-)

    P.S. Does anyone have a video camera you can bring? Recordings of our previous talks have been very appreciated. We'd love to do it again.

    1 · January 7, 2013

    • Michelle W.

      my SLR can record HD video but I've never used it to record a long event (not sure if it would fit on a 32GB SD). I'll bring it and you can use it if you don't find a real video cam before then.

      January 8, 2013

    • Carina C. Z.

      Thanks, Michelle. That sounds great. The talks are 5 minutes, so no worries about long event time. If the SD fills, we'll improvise with a phone or something.

    Can boys attend?

      Women Who Code is for folks who identify as women, so no go.
