I’ll be speaking at CodeStock!
I’ll have more info for you guys later but this will be my first non-SQL-centric event that I will be speaking at so I just wanted to share 🙂 I’m extra-excited about this event because this year they are making a push for Women In Technology. Here’s a snippet from that announcement:
“This year we are hoping to aid in raising awareness for women in technology. The US Department of Labor reported in 2009 women made up only 22.9% of computer programmers, and just 20.9% of computer software engineers. For comparison, women chief executives counted for 23.4% – more women are CEOs than programmers! (As an aside, 79.2% of meeting and convention planners are women, I’m a rarity it seems.)
This problem isn’t a simple one, and it not going to be fixed by a clever logo, but we can help by raising awareness.”
Here’s some more info on the event:
The theme for CodeStock 2010 is about connections. Connecting with peers and building a professional network. Connecting with IT roles outside of your own. Connecting with the people who can help make your ideas reality.
