On Thursday, August 27th, Write/Speak/Code NYC held their event “Developing Blog Posts Workshop for Women Devs” at Intent Media in Manhattan.
Intent Media has a great set up in there cafeteria area and was able to set up a livestream so that we had a recording of the night’s activities.
Melissa Wannish started off the evening by giving her lightning talk about Contributing to Open Source. Her slides and an additional post is available at her website at Ruby Thursday! Be sure to stop by her site and thank her for the useful information.
Luna took the stage next and presented on what she learned from reading The Healthy Programmer (you can find the book from The Pragmatic Bookshelf.) She has also graciously shared her slides on GitHub, you can download them here.
The rest of the evening was spent generating topics that we were experts at writing about. We then spent a good portion of the evening writing our first blog post and reviewing it with other women in attendance!
A reply of the night’s event can be found on LiveStream sites: please check it out!
