Girl Geek Dinners Melbourne is proud to welcome Pia Waugh and Alice Boxhall as our first dinner speakers. In town for the educational event Go Girl, Go for IT, they'll be speaking about their work encouraging girls to study and work in IT - and how you can get involved if you want!
Google Australia are also stepping up as a sponsor for October's dinner - so numbers are limited. Please RSVP to ensure your spot on Facebook.
Who is invited?
If you are a geek and a girl or know of one who is willing to escort you then you are welcome and encouraged to come along. There is a technical focus with the intention of having fun and connecting with other women in IT.
This one's for the gamer girls, or any of you who are interested in finding out what all the fuss is about the Wii!
ThoughtWorks are providing the venue, and supplying food and drinks (thanks guys!). So come along and play some video games (bring your favourites Wii games).
We also need 2 extra controllers, so please let Sarah know if you're able to bring yours for the night.
