Welcome to CoderXX 2015 !
The first hyper-focused technical conference for women (and when "women" are referenced, we also mean to include any person who identifies as a woman) engineers, developers, users, system administrators, scientists, mathematicians and geeks, presented by CodeChix-Bay Area.
This is a conference for women engineers by women engineers (codechix.org).
And, by helpful, supportive and open-minded men engineers (our speakers).
You must bring your laptop to this conference because you will be learning !!
This conference is for those of us who are driven and passionate about our technical field. We want to keep abreast of the current market-leading technologies, learn and enhance our knowledge and skills in an environment that is comfortable, encouraging, filled with super-smart women and men and focused on learning and knowledge-sharing. If you see yourself in this category, this is the conference for you. We want to meet you, get to know you and see how we can help you and see how you can help us and others. You must come - there are many others like you who would love to meet you.
We have a great schedule coming together that spans hands-on workshops on new programming languages, development frameworks, hardware and DevOps and also plenty of great technical talks by both women and men engineers/developers who practice everyday and are not in an "ivory tower". This is the real deal from real people who are in the trenches - not managing, directing, architecting etc. They build stuff everyday and know the in's/out's and what works and what doesn't - regardless of what books/journals tout.
We encourage networking and our conference may even help you find your next career opportunity! We will host selected employers who have tailored work environments that will provide the best chance of advancement and work satisfaction for technical women.
We expect engineers from all technical backgrounds including Computer Science, Electrical Eng., Aerospace, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics (you get the drift). If you identify yourself as a woman engineer, developer, scientist, mathematician, geek, this conference is for you!
Hope to see you there and
May the code be with you...
