Live Sketchnoting: An evening with Lightning talks and Salesforce

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!

Live Sketchnoting: Women Who Code

Tonight I attended a Women Who Code event hosted by Apple. Coincidentally this was my first attempt with a Microsoft Surface Pro 3. I used One Note and the stylus is just amazing. It was very easy to start drawing and the stylus captured easily most of my movement. The hardest part was to learn how to export notes from One Note or even figure out how to take a screenshot and apparently you need to swipe from the right side of the screen (now you know as well!)

This event was really interesting as it touched on a variety of subjects: female founders, mentors, bullies and I had the opportunity to listen to some very interesting women!
