This meetup will be lightning talks followed by time to hack or network. For about an hour our members will have the opportunity to give short talks about anything. Yes, you heard it: speak about anything at all! We want to give members the opportunity to practice their public speaking skills and talk about any topic they want. The talk doesn't have to be technical and the only requirement is that others should be able to learn something from it!
Following the lightning talks, we'll have some regular hack night programming. Bring any projects you're working on or homework you have to do. Work on a code challenge, write a blog post, catch up on work or emails or just talk to your fellow women in tech.
6:00 - 6:30 pm: Registration + Mingle
6:30 - 7:30 pm: Lightning Talks
7:30 - 8:30 pm: Hacking/Networking
If you'd like to give a lightning talk, please fill out this form. If you'd like to speak but don't have a topic in mind, let us know and we can help you brainstorm. The talks will be short (6-8 minutes plus a couple of minutes Q & A) so shouldn't require a lot of preparation.
This event is intended to be a safe space learning environment for those who identify as women, transgender, or non-binary. Thank you for your respect and understanding.
Food & Drink will be provided. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
