This is the second ‘Women Who Code‘ event I attend. One superficial reason I love these events is because I get to enter cool offices in London (which compared to my own window-less office space is like oasis!). In the past I have had the chance to attend events in Guardian’s HQ, Mozilla, Twitter and many more.
Two nights ago I was lucky enough to see where the Stack Overflow guys work. If you have ever coded in your life (school level, university level or at work) you must have come across this community. Most of the times I find a helpful answer going through their archives. Some times they feel like a code – God haha – who has all the answers! So it was good to realise that they actually exist!
Event was sponsored by Salesforce. And it was lovely to realise that they employ so many girls. My company often holds salesforce trainings so after this event it might be something I pursue as well!
For more information on what we talked about, check out my sketchnote below.
In other news, I was happy to discovery a few more twitter accounts to follow of interesting people in tech. I have included as many twitter handles as I could get so you can check them out as well!
