Girl Geeks Summer break – and what’s on!

We’ve decided to take a break from hosting events over the summer and start up again in September so do let us know if you have an idea for a host, venue or speaker as we’re always looking for new ideas and inspiration.

Thanks Maria!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Maria Felice who has really held the group together over the last year or so whilst some us were off having babies or exiled in Germany. I don’t think the group would have survived without you! Maria has almost finished her PhD and is off to start a job in Coventry. Hopefully she will make it to our September event but if not we wish you lots of luck in the future and do come and join us whenever you are in Bristol.

What’s On

Girl geeks might be taking a break but there are lots of other great geeky events going on in Bristol over the next couple of months – if you don’t want to go on your own get on our Facebook page and find a buddy to go with you – we’re a friendly approachable lot! You can also find details of other events and opportunities on the Facebook page.

Just Eat have just opened a new office and are having a Bristol Developer meetup This Friday (July 25th) with food and drinks.
Swiftly followed by a Hackathon on Saturday 26th July.

Brightpearl have two coding events going on:

Bristol Java meetup at Brightpearl – Tuesday August 5th 7pm
Testing and CI meetup with PHP SW at Brightpearl Wednesday August 20th 7pm

Codefirst girls are looking for instructors/assistants to help out with the program. These people will need to be able to teach HTML, CSS and Javascript. Knowing Ruby on Rails will be a plus! They will need to commit to 2 hours every week for 4 weeks – more info: www.codefirstgirls.org.uk

If you have any similar events running over July and August please share them on our FB page or tweet us  and we’ll see you all again in September. Thanks for your continued support!
