August 26th – Women in Tech Breakfast | Register here.
We invite you to join us for this interactive breakfast for Women in Technology. We’re featuring great female leaders in tech to give their insight on how they reached their level of success, advice on navigating the workplace, and how we can help the next generation of women in tech. This dynamic panel will be moderated by Tricia Whitlock, formerly of Hypepotamus and Tech Square Labs. Our esteemed panel of speakers are pioneers in their respective fields, representing many facets of the Georgia and international tech industry. After the panel, we are going to change our normal flow and instead of continuing the conversation in a breakout session, we are going to give all guests a chance to write their first line of code as part of our #ilooklikeadeveloper campaign. The goal of #ilooklikeadeveloper is to demystify tech and get 500 women to write their first line of code by the end of the year in a fun and inclusive community environment! Please bring a computer if you would like to opt into the fun breakout session and write your first line of code!
