Bristol Girl Geek Dinners -- Launch Event
15 February 2010
Bristol Girl Geek Dinners is a community of women interested in Technology and Engineering.
The Department of Computer Science at the University of Bristol will be hosting the inaugural Wine Reception on Monday 15th of February from 6pm onwards.
The purpose of this event is to explain the objectives of the group and gather our members' thoughts. Jo Reid from Calvium will be guest speaker. Jo is currently the Creative Director of Calvium, a company that enables people to build exciting mobile applications based on sensors and context. Jo was formerly a senior researcher at Hewlett-Packard Laboratories working in the Pervasive Computing Laboratory. Jo has expertise in experience design and user centred research, specialising in mobile location aware experiences or mediascapes.
Girl Geek Dinners are organised all over the world. They are a lot of fun and provide a great environment for women to talk about technology. Men are welcome to the event as long as they are invited by one of our female participants. More information and details of future events can be found at the Bristol Girl Geek Dinners website.
