November WiSE Meetup: Women's Experiences in Tech
We created the Women in Software Engineering (WiSE) Speaker Series to highlight the accomplishments of successful women engineers, and to connect women aspiring to be software engineers to mentors and peers. The WiSE series is produced by Codesmith in an effort to improve the diversity gap in tech by collaborating with leading tech companies through mentorship and scholarship opportunities for women pursuing a software engineering education at Codesmith. Every month, we will bring the best speakers and mentors to an interested audience on topics ranging from career advice for women in tech to the latest JavaScript and web technologies. -- For this month's meetup, we're excited to welcome Mejin Leechor, Annie DiFiore and Jo Zhou. Mejin Leechor is a full-stack software engineer at Pivotal, where she practices test-driven development (TDD) and agile methodologies to help companies build better software. She is interested in developing professional cultures and processes that acknowledge the human side of software development. She was a Cohort 19 resident and engineering fellow at Codesmith. When she’s not writing code, Mejin is a pop singer-songwriter and violinist. Annie DiFiore is an educator turned software engineer. She is currently building tools in React and Scala as a member of the Catalog Management team at HauteLook/NordstromRack. She is thrilled to be a part of the growing culture of women in technology. Jo Zhou is a Full-Stack Software Engineer at Wonder Technologies where she works on building robust systems for the financial industry in React, GraphQL, Docker, and Node. An enthusiastic supporter of tech communities, she also contributes to and speaks at local events in her free time. Her current side projects include Rust, WebAssembly, Ethereum, and climbing all the rocks. 7:00 - 7:15 PM: Arrivals & mingling 7:15 - 8:00 PM: TPanel discussion 8:00 - 8:30 PM: Drinks & networking Price: Always free **If you are interested in speaking at WiSE, please contact [masked]
