Never been to an unconference or camp? This one provides an amazing opportunity to learn from a range of geeky women in a peer-to-peer participant driven event. Check out proposed She's Geeky unconference topics on the wiki, and have the opportunity to contribute your own session ideas at the Girl Geek Dinner!
What happens at a She's Geeky unconference? Beginning at 9am each day, we start with a blank wall and create a multi-track conference agenda that is relevant and inspiring to everyone. Rooms are assigned to each topic and participants attend sessions they are interested in. Notes from each session are collected and a book is compiled with all the notes from the conference and distributed to everyone who attends. For a 3-minute peek at last year's unconference, click here.
She's Geeky (January 30-31, 2009 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View) unconference tickets can be purchased for Friday or Saturday or both days. Join She's Geeky Friday evening after the unconference for a showing of a film about Ada Lovelace, the "first programmer" according to Wikipedia.
