    Really interesting event -- definitely will come to another. Amber, thanks for your talk. I've always been a passive consumer, but I would like to be able to contribute as well. You've inspired me to create a Stackoverflow account this morning!

    Amazing cross section of talks and ideas. All the talks were interesting. I learned a few things and meet some great young women.

    I had a great time meeting people and covering a gamut of new tools, topics, and information with a great group of gals.

    My slides aren't worth posting, but you can get swi-Prolog for all popular OS's at http://www.swi-prolog.org
    A popular tutorial on prolog is as http://cs.union.edu/~striegnk/learn-prolog-now/
    The sample programs I showed are available on github as part of my set of examples at https://github.com/Anniepoo/prolog-examples

    I'm interested in giving a talk on how software is key to genomics and personalized medicine. Wondering if we can/should have slides?

    Hey guys, I'm not going to be able to give my talk after all - my group decided to hold our big server move that night and all hands are on deck. I'm sorry to bail on you. :(

    Cool - too bad it's on the same date/time as the CodeChix event at Google Crittenden! I would have signed up to talk, but, guess it will have to wait.

      Argh! Sorry to hear that. We always seem to run into scheduling issues with other women in technology groups; a nice problem to have, I suppose!

    The "sign up" is a form that (I guess) sends you mail?
    It would be very helpful to all of us to see the results of the signup. Has anyone agreed to talk? What subjects?

    • Jennie

      We were planning on posting the roster a little closer to the time :)
