Description

Code in Color is celebrating Black History Month at Buoyant! Join us for refreshments, good vibes, and stimulating discussions on art, technology, and society this February.

Cross-posted on the Code in Color Meetup group.

Featured speakers:

Dennis Adjei-Baah (Software Engineer, Bouyant)
Dennis spends his day writing code, his first love, however, he also is passionate about music and technology. Technology has played a critical role in making music production more accessible to artists around the world and has given rise to what artists call "bedroom" music producers. In his talk, Dennis explains how one technological innovation made it possible for artists to create chart-topping hits with nothing more than a laptop computer, keyboard and speakers. He'll further explore how this technology has leveled the playing field and has given artists more creative freedom in their work. Finally, He'll look at the impact this technology has made for consumers of music and the artists that create it.

Tanya Campbell (Visual Design Lead, David E. Glover Education & Technology Center)
What is this equation, art + technology = ________ , suppose to produce? How can we reimagine our communities and futures through art + technology? What do you get when you give low-income youth of color the tools to merge art + technology? Let’s explore the realms of these questions, and more, in this chat.

Dena Mwangi (Software Engineer, Sentry.io)
Dena is a bootcamp grad with a MA in Economics currently working as a full stack software engineer on the growth team at Sentry, an open source error monitoring tool. She has a passion for finding creative ways to use data as a tool to help us get a sense of the world. She particularly loves building things that illuminate what's typically unseen, using tech for good and advocating for equity.
