Girl Geeks in Residence @ BarCamp Mediacity, 27th August 2011

BarCamp MediaCity

A few of us made an appearance at BarCampMediaCityUK the other weekend as part of the Girl Geeks in Residence. The aim was to provide a female presence and to encourage more women to attend the event. It was very encouraging to see that there was a good mix of attendees on both days.

I’ve written a short account of the event on my personal blog highlighting some of the key talks that really stood out to me.

A big thank you to BBC North for playing host and Geeks of London for organising such a great weekend. Special thanks to Ian Forrester for inviting us along.

BarCamp MediaCityUK was a one-off event. For anyone who maybe interested in forthcoming sessions. Our honorary Girl Geek Gem is organising BarCamp Blackpool in October,  BarCamp London 9 is due to take place down south at the end of October, and there is a BarCamp Liverpool in November.
