Event: She’s Geeky (Un)Conference

Info from She’s Geeky:

A Women’s Tech (un)Conference
October 22-23 Computer History Museum, Mountain View, CA.
Cost: $125 until Sept 30 | $175 after.

The She’s Geeky (un)conference will provide an agenda-free and friendly environment for women who not only care about building technology that is useful for people, but who also want to encourage more women to get involved. It is designed to provide women who self-identify as geeky and who are engaged in various technology-focused disciplines with a gathering space in which they can exchange skills and discuss ideas and form community across and within disciplines.

Our goal is to create an open space forum for women in tech to come together to

  • Exchanging skills and learning from women from diverse fields of technology.
  • Discussing topics about women and technology.
  • Connecting the diverse range of women in technology, computing, entrepreneurship, funding, hardware, open source, nonprofit and any other technical geeky field.

This is an unconference so it will have an agenda created by the people who attend.

While we’re on the topic of women, I must point out the current issue of Wharton University’s Wharton @ Work, which features articles about women in technology. And I hope you’ve been keeping up with the O’Reilly Women in Technology series, where today Amy Hoy says that she doesn’t like articles about women in technology.
