I am really pleased to announce that She’s Geeky #4 is happening in Northern Virginia (DC Area) Saturday April 18th. Registration is Open.
It is at LMI’s facilities in McLean (they donated the space). There is one drawback – it isn’t on a metro 🙁 We have a wiki up to help people coordinate rides. We plan to have an event in DC proper (on a metro line) before the end of the year (likely many months from now if not until the fall). By holding events both in and outside the city, we hope to bridge the gap between the two tech communities.
She’s Geeky in Mountain View covered a really diverse range of toipcs all
* from beekeeping to gunshot detection
* from twitter use to hardware hacking
* from personal finance to government 2.O
* from tweeking wordpress to advanced coding in ruby
I expect the same fantastic range in DC with more women from fields that we have less of in the Bay Area – defense, intelligence, aerospace, nptech, government 2.0.
We are actively looking for sponsors and accepting donations so that we can give discount scholarships to students and unemployed women.
