Women In Tech March 2018
This month we are really excited to welcome Pauline Narvas and Hazel Seanor to Women in Tech, Nottingham, who will be giving talks on Learning from Failure and How Your Website Is Secretly Geocities respectively.
We all go through adversity and this is something we usually can’t change; it is what it is. But what isn’t fixed is how we react to it. Pauline will be sharing her experiences and stories on failure, the lessons she learnt and how you can not only bounce back up but propel yourself in another direction: upwards.
Pauline is a Biomedical Sciences student at the University of Sheffield, she writes code, encourages women to reach for the stars (with Code First: Girls), and helps organise events such as inspireWIT and HackMed. She has also blogged about everything since 2008 and loves everything health, well-being and self-development related.
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.
