In the vein of my Bubblicious Guba post, women in tech have been on my mind. Tomorrow, Tues Dec 5, Women 2.0 is holding an awesome event. I’ll be spending time with other women who I respect and just generally enjoy spending time with. I attended the inaugural Women 2.0 event in May and met many talented and inspiring women who I still keep in touch with.
A photo from the archives - I met Angie Chang, one of the founders of Women 2.0, and Elea Chang for the first time at SuperHappyDevHouse9. The inaugural Women 2.0 event was held the next morning. (photo credit: Joanne Wan) I’ve also spent some time with Wen-Wen Lam, and I just know that the event will be great!
Come join me tomorrow! Details follow:
