Re: If You Can't Be Ada, Be Grace
@dave -- Looking forward to more coverage of women in computing/technology
in the meantime, here's something I stumbled upon the other day -- who knew?
The 2015 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing is being held October 14 – 16 in Houston, Texas. Learn more at gracehopper.org
Started in 1994, GHC is now the world's largest gathering of women technologists. In 2013, GHC hosted over 4,750 attendees from 53 countries including 1,900 students from over 400 academic institutions and 2,850 professionals from industry, government and academia. GHC 2014 sold out in record time, even with an increase in capacity to accommodate over 8,000 attendees. The conference features keynotes by prominent women in technology, career workshops, and technical tracks from leading researchers and the best of ACM SIGSOFT & SIGGRAPH.
