Just a quick post to thank everyone who came out to the 2nd TGGD this week (and thanks too to those who sent their regrets but who were there in spirit)! I counted 40 people in attendance — just enough to fill our little private room without it being too cosy. :) Thanks also to […]

Since student response for the sponsored spots has been a little slow to build, whereas there were a number of people on the regular attendee standby list, we’ve re-jigged things a little, adding another 10 spots to the “regular” list and reducing the student list from 25 to 15. If you have any suggestions on […]

June 28th, 2007  by webmistress

Thanks to everyone who came out to last night’s inaugural Girl Geek Dinner! In my completely unbiased, objective opinion as co-organizer, it was a fantastic success. :) We had a great turnout (I counted 32 people) and women (and 1 man) of all ages and career stages chatted, socialized, and networked.
