Come join us for our second Speaker Series lecture and demo!  Please feel free to bring your guy friends/spouse/sig-o's also since this is an open event.  It is recommended that men who attend be vouched for/sponsored by a CodeChix member (excluding Mozilla employees who are most welcome to attend).  

 

This time we are hosting the following awesome speakers:

  • Taylor Louie - CEO, Skill Addiction                                                                                                                      Taylor Louie is a recent graduate of Syracuse University, and a Founder for the competitive casual gaming website SkillAddiction.com.  Having grown up in Silicon Valley with a steady diet of Super Mario and AOL Instant Messenger, she is a product of the digital age.  Combine that with a fiercely independent spirit and business savvy, and you've got the perfect concoction for a gaming entrepreneur.  Outside of games, she is also totally intrigued by social media; find her @t_louie.
  • Jason Clark - CTO, Skill Addiction                                                                                                                             Jason has worked in just about every facet of web development since back when we all thought Netscape Navigator was amazing, WebObjects was the only Application Server on the market and tech journalists were contractually obligated to include the word 'beleaguered' in any article about Apple Computer.  Design, programming, information architecture, database development, writing, editing, blogging and tweeting have all been a part of his career as well as managing programming/IS staffs and consultants, both local and globally dispersed.  Jason has worked in the Fortune 500 end of the scale, as well as with startups, and three nonprofits.            
  • Lukas Blakk - Release Engineer, Mozilla HQ                                                                                                             https://plus.google.com/117791572332002155814/about

We will be raffling some T-shirts this time!

CodeChix - BayArea

CodeChix is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives (501c3).  It is an organization for local women developers run by local women developers in a non-alpha, language/os agnostic, supportive environment with an emphasis on face-to-face communication. It is the first group of its kind and started in 2009 in San Jose, CA.

The key goals of CodeChix are to educate, promote and mentor women engineers and developers.  We foster continuous learning, provide mentorship/guidance and create a local community of women developers. The original chapter of CodeChix is in the Silicon Valley/Bay Area with additional chapters in Seattle/Redmond. The CodeChix slogan is “May the code be with you…”.

CodeChix organizes Hacking Sessions, Technical Talks and Technical Workshops. Past events include Wikipedia’s Operations Infrastructure, Algorithms and Directed Acyclic Graphs, Mobile/Graphic Design for Engineers Workshop, Toy Robotics: My little Pleo, OpenShift Workshop, Android Installfest & App Building 101, Hacking Raspberry Pi and Javascript Plugins Workshop.

Events are open to to the public or women-only (specified on the event description). Our speakers and workshop instructors can be female or male.
