Women In Tech March 2018
This month we are really excited to welcome Hazel Seanor to Women in Tech, Nottingham, who will be giving a talk on How Your Website Is Secretly Geocities.
It's been six months since our last retro, so we want to take the temperature of WiT by running an agile retrospective - if you've not done a retrospective before this is your chance to try it out!
Your Website is Secretly Geocities
by Hazel Seanor
The web has come a long way since the 1990s. So we're out of the dark ages... right?
Hazel is a student at Nottingham University Academy of Science and Technology, a voting process architect for the Organization for Transformative Works, and a coding instructor at Pixelheads Night Classes at the National Videogame Arcade. In her free time, she enjoys reading comics, building costumes, and working on various tech-related projects.
An Agile Retrospective On Women In Tech, The Meetup
The retrospective is one of the most important elements of any Agile development process, it is a mechanism for celebrating successes, acknowledging failures and then improving and optimising.
We will demonstrate the power of the retrospective by running a retro session on Women in Tech as an event.
As an outcome we'll all get to experience and participate in the retrospective session and we'll all get to work together to make WiT Notts a better event.
And there'll be post-it notes and sharpies galore!
Win free stuff at WiT Notts!
This month at Women in Tech we'll be giving away a copy of the book, Programmed Inequality: How Britain Discarded Women Technologists and Lost Its Edge in Computing, a fascinating and disturbing account of women’s roles in the British computing industry’s rise and fall AND an Amazon Echo Dot!
Attend and tweet on the #WiTNotts hashtag to be with a chance!
Join in with the Nottingham Tech Community online
The conversation continues online in the Tech Nottingham Slack group, which is a bustling, friendly online community with a channel for (almost) everything you can think of from #pets-corner to #devcorner, #podcasts to #design and everything in between. We'd love to see you there!
