Just a quick reminder: July 6th is the last day for the super early bird rate for the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing.
If you haven’t heard of GHC before, it’s a really amazing conference for women involved in technology (especially geek feminists!). Not only does it tip the usual ratios on their heads (hello, >90% women! And yes, that means men are welcome.) it’s one of very few conferences where I can say that even the most technical talks are interesting and well-presented (no boring grad students reading from slides in a monotone here!) There’s also job hunting opportunities, career advice, talks about work-life balance, impostor syndrome, and this year, I’m going to be taking part in a new track on open source, along with Leslie Hawthorn (whose guest post you might remember) and many other excellent folk.
I’ve met some amazing friends through this conference, women who continue to inspire me, and I highly recommend it to all of you.
