These types of events are near and dear to my heart. I built my first website in 1997, while still in high school, and my career in online media started in the year 2000. I’ve owned my own website development shop since 2008, and published the city’s most award-winning blog since 2004. I’m a woman in tech, and I also know how important it is to engage girls of all ages in wonders of engineering, coding, and so much more that the future can hold for them.
A general admission WINtech pass ($90, purchase by February 26) will get you into all of the week’s events. To get involved with the upcoming Women in Tech Week, follow WINtech on Facebook and Twitter.
