Next Meetup

PANEL: Tech and public speaking
Join Madison Women in Tech for our second annual panel on tech and public speaking! We're excited to be co-hosting it this year with the Madison Web Design & Development Meetup. We'll be discussing ... - The benefits of conference-speaking (and how to sell it to your supervisor!) - How to brainstorm topics you could speak about - Determining which kind of speaking experience is a good fit for you - What the submission process is like - And more! If there's time, anyone interested can write a sample talk pitch and get feedback from fellow attendees. PANELISTS # Beth Tucker Long Beth Tucker Long is a PHP developer and an organizer of the Madison PHP and Madison Web Design & Development groups. You can find her on Twitter (@e3betht) or on her blog (http://www.alittleofboth.com). Beth is a firm believer in promoting community and mentoring. She runs Treeline Design, a web development company, and Playlist Event Music, a DJ company, along with her husband, Chris. # Amy Unger The granddaughter of a former MIT computer (yup, that was a job title), Amy was clearly supposed to be a programmer, but just did not get the message. Her wanderings have taken her through the land of libraries and archives and into software consulting. Now a software engineer at Heroku, she is deeply grateful for every scarce day she does not use vim commands in Google Docs. # Hilary Stohs-Krause (WiT co-organizer) Hilary Stohs-Krause is currently based in Madison, WI, working as a full-stack software developer at Ten Forward Consulting. She came to tech by way of childhood website-building (a "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fansite, to be exact). She volunteers regularly with several tech and community organizations, and tweets at @hilarysk. DETAILS As we're co-hosting this with an all-genders meetup, everyone is welcome (including men). Though we won't have any specific activities for them, babes in arms, youth and teens are also welcome.

What we're about

Madison Women in Tech is a supportive community of women and gender nonbinary folks working or interested in technology, from designers to coders to recruiters to technicians. Through regular events and a digital newsletter, we empower and elevate women working in Madison’s tech scene.

Sign up for our semi-monthly newsletter via http://subscribe.madisonwomen.tech (http://subscribe.madisonwomen.tech/), featuring community events, WiT news, volunteer opportunities and job openings. Follow us on Twitter at @Madison_WiT (http://www.twitter.com/Madison_WiT) and find us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/wit.madison/).

WHO CAN ATTEND OUR EVENTS?

Any woman or nonbinary person interested in or working in technology is welcome at ALL of our events.

Men are welcome at most of our events, but not all - the occasions when are events are specifically for women and nonbinary folks, we will make it clear in the event description. Unsure if it's OK? Feel free to shoot us an email at admin@madisonwomen.tech and double-check (we're very nice).

We aren't often able to provide dedicated childcare, and some of our events might not be appropriate for children (depending on their age), but we try to choose event spaces that are child-friendly. If you you think your child/children would enjoy an event, or are having trouble finding childcare during an event, we highly encourage you to bring your children.
