Description

Wow, how'd it get to be 2014 already? We don't know either, but what could be better than spending an evening hanging out with a bunch of gals who are into programming, design, development, and other tech-oriented geekery. Renew connections and meet some new friends (and potential collaborators)!

In a nutshell, it'll be a group of smart women discussing ideas, projects, careers, start-ups, and anything else inside and outside the world of web development. Anyone who identifies as a woman (or a girl) is welcome so bring a friend, daughter, co-worker, niece, or neighbor!

You can check out the menu at Firebrand Saints here.

Note: This event was originally scheduled for Thursday January 2nd but has been rescheduled due to the snow storm. The new date is Thursday January 9th.

    Awesome event! I mentioned this to some of you but I am looking to meet female product managers at tech companies. I would really appreciate any help. Thanks and see you soon.

    So nice to meet so many great ladies!
    So here's a question for everyone, and I did run this by some of you but wanted to put it out there for a wider audience. I am looking right now for a freelance front end developer that's experienced in html5 and java to finish up a project. My previous developer took a job in another city and left the project half way done. If you or anyone you know is interested please email me at [masked]. Thank you!!!

    Hi! This sounds great, but there's going to be a major snow storm tomorrow. Any thoughts about rescheduling?

      Eep! Just got back to town from visiting family down south for the holidays and hadn't gotten up to speed on the weather. Thanks for bringing the impending storm to our attention, Sarah! We'll reschedule for next Thursday evening. Hope you can make it then!

    The good news? I landed a super cool job as the webmaster at The Skating Club of Boston and will be working at the U.S Figure Skating Championships this January! scboston.org, skatingacademy.org, boston2014.com. Yay.

    The bad news? I'll be working at the Championships so can't make it to the WCC event. Boo.

    The best news of all? Y'all (WCC, WebStartWomen) were a big part of me landing the job! Yay Yay Yay.

    Thanks WCC.
