Practical Uses of Directed Acyclic Graphs
Algorithms are a critical part of computer science and behind the scenes they are employed to solve many complex problems. This talk focuses on common graph algorithms— more specifically, directed acyclic graphs (DAGs)… In this talk, Tim Kimmet (VP Platform & Systems, Walmart Global E-Commerce) will focus on the DAG data structure using real code and provide use cases that solve real problems at Walmart.
State of Security Architecture Practices Today

While the specialty field of “Information Security Architecture” is maturing and slowly gaining ground as a recognized specialty, there are still many misconceptions about what it really means. Michelle will present the state of information security architecture today, some of the common misconception about the practice and finally present a consensus outline of what a good security architecture practice entails and what are the key questions that should be asked for every project.

She joined Cisco in March 1996 as the founding member of Cisco’s internal security team, which is now the Corporate Security Programs Office under John Stewart.

Why are we asking for donations?

CodeChix is seeking non-profit status and we need to raise funds for filing fees. Apart from that, there is great demand for CodeChix T-shirts and we would love to be able to give our loyal attendees 2013 CodeChix T-shirts. So, we are also raising funds for that effort.

If your company would like to sponsor T-shirts, please contact us at

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.
