Saskatoon Girl Geek Dinner #2 Nov 17

Saskatoon Girl Geek Dinners round deux will be held at Point2 Technologies Inc. on Monday, November 17th at 6:00pm. I am working with the Point2 Administrative team to finalize the details on the catered meal but I hope to make it cost $15 or less. Pop, water and coffee/tea will be included with the meal.

You can sign up for the event on Facebook or send me an email. (melanie dot cey at gmail dot com). You should also contact me if you are a student who is interested in attending and would like to be sponsored by Point2. Let me know what course you are attending and what year you are in. There are a set number of sponsored spots available from Point2 and they will be given out on a first come first served basis.

And lastly, please contact me if you are interested in presenting or leading a discussion group. I would like to have complete details finalized within the next 2 weeks.

I know that many of you have a lot of knowledge to share. Don’t be shy!

First Dinner, Lots of Fun

The dinner on Monday night was a blast!  Girl Geeks from all ages and various areas of geekdom gathered and learned and shared information.   GingerK has posted a great summary of the evening.

Unfortunately the speaker was unable to make it so Emily and I instead gave a presentation on Point2‘s switch to Agile/Scrum. The presentation was well received and led to a lot of questions.

I am hoping to plan the next dinner for the fall, likely later in October after BarCamp08.

If you or someone you know is interested in speaking please get a hold of me.
