GGDOttawa Season Opener with Girl Develop It Ottawa

Have you heard of Girl Develop It Ottawa? It’s a new community meetup founded by Serena Ngai and Gail Carmichael designed to provide women in Ottawa the opportunity to learn programming, all with the goal to create a stronger female tech community in the Nation’s Capital.

For our 2011-2012 Girl Geek Dinner (GGD) Ottawa season opener, we’ve invited Serena to share the inspiration behind this new meetup for women. Whether you are a seasoned programmer, just starting out or have an avid interest in all things code-related, please join us Wednesday, November 16th to hear Serena share:

  • How technical skills can be valuable for your career
  • Why this “women in technology” thing really matters
  • What is Girl Develop It? And learn about upcoming workshops

Event Details:

When: Wednesday, November 16th at 6:00 p.m.
Where: The Black Tomato in the Market (get directions)

About Serena

Serena Ngai is a front-end developer and designer with a background in software development, currently working at Shopify. She is passionate about mentoring and inspiring young females to explore fields of technology and its many different applications.

The idea of starting a Girl Develop It chapter in Ottawa was born out of frustration from hearing a lot of talk about the lack of women in technology, but not seeing a lot of action being done to get more involved! Follow Serena (@serenangai) and Girl Develop It Ottawa (@gdiottawa) on Twitter.
