It is designed to provide women who self-identify as geeky and who are
engaged in various technology-focused disciplines with a gathering
space in which they can exchange skills and discuss ideas and form
community across and within disciplines.
Our goal is to create an open space forum for women in tech to come together to

3. Connecting the diverse range of women in technology, computing,
entrepreneurship, funding, hardware, open source, nonprofit and any
other technical geeky field.

an agenda created by the people who attend.
