She’s Geeky: A Women’s Tech (un)Conference Coming up (Oct 22-23 in CA)

September 21, 2007 by Lisa Oshima | Developers, Events

For all you tech-savvy women out there… There’s a new, 2-day technology event coming up at the end of October (22-23) in Mountain View, CA called “She’s Geeky,” which should be good.  Unfortunately, for wireless geeks, it overlaps with the first day of CTIA’s Wireless I.T. and Entertainment 2007 at Moscone Center in San Francisco, but it She’s Geeky sounds like a great couple of days.

It’s an “unconference” with an agenda molded by the attendees.  According to the website,

It is designed to provide women who self-identify as geeky and who are engaged in various technology-focused disciplines with a gathering space in which they can exchange skills and discuss ideas and form community across and within disciplines.

I don’t identify myself as being geeky (after all, there’s a difference between being geeky and well informed), but based on the women I know going, I’m sure that’s not a pre-requisite.  The goal of the event is to get women in technology fields to learn from each other, talk about what’s happening in technology, and network.

If you’re interested in going, register here.  The event is being sponsored by Google, Plaxo, and others.  If your company would like to be a sponsor, email She’s Geeky.
