Our first Alumna track is designed just for you!
When we planned our first Write/Speak/Code conference in 2013, we did it because we wanted it. We wanted to write more about our expertise. We wanted to submit proposals and speak at conferences. We wanted to contribute to open source. All of this, but we didn’t know how to do it. We wanted a path and a tribe of like-minded individuals to encourage us along. And with that, Write/Speak/Code was born!
It’s been 3 years and like you, we have grown as leaders and individuals. Many of us have gone on to speak at (many) conferences, have started our own open source projects, and have wrote numerous blogs, articles, and books. After all of that, we’re once again looking for the next step!
Based on the feedback we have received from many of our alumna and Meetup chapter members, we have crafted our latest and greatest idea: Write/Speak/Code 2016 Alumna Track.
Our Alumna track is meant for women who may or may not have already attended our conference. Most importantly, we want to be able to offer more content to our attendees who already have a grasp of their expertise and are looking for more ways to influence their careers and community. Some topics we will cover include leadership, self-care, self-promotion, and advanced technical topics. On the second day we’ll dive into brainstorming, pitching, and planning a project of your choice — either independently or with a small group of other women in a collaboration. By the end of the third day, you will give a 3 minute pitch to talk about your project. Throughout the 3-day conference, you’ll hear from industry-leading speakers who will help you form your own ideas to help you reach your entrepreneurial and development goals.
