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.

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. For more info and to register for She's Geeky, visit
