WomenBuild at MDC
By now, I'm sure you've heard of the MSDN Developer Conference coming to Boston on January 22nd (and New York City on Jan 20th). If you haven't, it's $99 for a day's worth of presentations in three tracks covering a host of topics that first got exposure at the Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles last October.
The workshop will run from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (and, yes, guys are welcome!) with a focus on brainstorming ways to to make technology and careers in technology more accessible to women. The cool part of all this is that you'll actually be using Lego® Bricks as a modeling tool to foster personal interaction and networking. And all attendees will receive a Lego Serious Play WomenBuild kit as well. This program was a hit at the PDC as well as at MDC events held earlier this month.
See you in Boston on the 22nd!
