    I'm sorry I had to miss the WWC event! From the look of everyone's comments, it sounded like a really successful one. Extending an invite for a coding event coming up on Saturday. The DevDraft online hiring event that promotes diversity in the workplace. You’ll get an inside track on our evaluation methodology for developers and on the data analytics platform that powers it. RSVP Here: http://www.meetup.com/techinterviews/events/206541342/

    P.S. If you're preparing for job interviews, there's an interview prep group in the same location and it starts at 6pm.

    Thank you all so much for this delightful event. It felt as if the presenters were having a conversation with us instead of a strict tech talk, and it was heartening to see SO many women in the room. Great meetup, great opportunity.

    Thank you for putting on such a wonderful event. Amazon members were great hosts. I received a great resume review and made changes to my resume. The Tech Talks were great. What a lot of people. This was my second WWC meetup. I hope to interact more next time. Thanks!

    Thanks for putting on such a great event. I enjoyed the diversity of the topics covered by the speakers, especially Ben's story. It really highlighted how important tenacity is to success. One of the best meet ups I've been to.

  • Pam L

    This was my first WWC event. Thanks! I really appreciated the resume review and the talks, especially the interesting one by the male dev. He told of his experience at amazon, right from his first day. May be similar at other giant companies.

    One suggestion: Since there were so many job seekers (as opposed to employed devs), a session on suggested paths to employment may be useful, even including recommendations of good programs (non-degree).

    This sounds really cool Saranya! :) Although, is it just for amazon employees? (Just clarifying)

    There is a Women in Wireless even on the same day on the east-side. I would like to attend both. Since this is early days for this meetup, would you be willing to change the date - perhaps by a week?
