GGD#58 GGD Introduction to Salesforce for Developers with women who code by Edith Valencia Martinez

Our March joint Girl Geek Dinner with ‘women who code’ is hosted by Desklodge

Wednesday March 8th

We have been a bit remiss and mislaid our march sponsor – therefore as Rebeb has agreed to restart the ‘women who code’ group, which is great news, we have decided to join forces.  We know its not a lot of notice but feel its a great opportunity to support them.  We are aware that many of you are not coders but theres no test so come along and try out your skills if not, salesforce is a great and popular tool, you can always just watch and ask questions in the second part!

Join up on women who code if you are a member – if not then please join up here and we will coordinate the numbers.

Heres the info:

Have you ever wondered what Salesforce is about?

Are you curious about developing in the cloud?

Then join us in this session and you will have the opportunity to learn about Salesforce platform.

The session will be divided in two parts.

In the first part we will review the basic concepts of Salesforce and we will find out how to create a fully functional application from scratch.

In the second part you will create your own organisation and you will have the opportunity to develop in the cloud.

Note: Please bring a computer, so that you can create your organisation and practice.

About the speaker:

Edith Valencia Martinez is an applications developer at Desynit, Bristol. She has more than ten years of technical expertise in software development, software architectures and agile methodologies. She holds a Master’s degree in Software Engineering from the University of York.

After several years of developing in Java, Edith has recently started developing in the Salesforce platform.

GGD#57 $@>U#%? – Security is all around you by Gudrun Fedorowich

Our February Girl Geek Dinner is hosted by LLoyds Banking Group

Thursday February 16th 

Although Information and Cyber Security are headline news the stories we see and hear reveal little about this field which can have so much influence on our lives. This talk looks to redress the balance by giving an overview of the key building blocks that this discipline is based on and the career opportunities these present.

  • Triangles and chains – the basics of information security

  • Behind the headlines – using news stories to show how security works and what happens when it fails

  • Internet of Things – securing the things that are part of your every day life

  • Careers in Information and Cyber Security


Gudrun Fedorowich

Gudrun has 20 years experience in Information Technology 10 of which have been spent in the field of Information and Cyber Security culminating in her current role at Lloyds Banking Group. She holds a Masters degree in Information Security from the University of the West of England. IT is her second career as Gudrun holds an undergraduate degree in the History of Art and her early working life spanned roles in sales, marketing and management development.

After the presentation and any questions we will open the floor up for a discussion,  if anyone feels like they would like to bring along any ppt’s or links that they want to share for discussion then please bring it along on a USB or mail the team with info and we can share this during the discussion period. Don’t forget – you don’t have to work in the industry or be a geek, this is a group for anyone with an interest in the subject!  Do come along for pre-presentation mingling as we will be there from 6.30pm. 


The food and hosting is kindly sponsored by LLoyds Banking Group who are based in the LLoyds ampitheatre Building on Bristol Harbourside – details will be posted on the exact building entrance on the meetup page once we receive it

Our  Midwinter Social is free, and a great chance to meet and mingle with a whole bunch of talented and diverse people.

WTHub is a social enterprise that exists to support individual women with their careers in tech, and connect them with local womens tech groups and industry. We also encourage women to attend and speak at mixed events and like to share news about all the great things going on out there in Bristol and the South-West. We are actively working with local companies to create a more diverse workplace culture.

If we haven’t persuaded you already with the idea of free wine and beer and some free crisps, here are a couple of reasons to come to our Midwinter Social:

For meetup organisers it’s a chance to network with local women in tech groups and find out what else is happening in the region.

For tech businesses, do feel free to bring information about opportunities with your company, or just come and talk to some great and interesting women about their experiences of working in tech.

If you’d like to bring info about a meetup group or recruitment or relevant events then please let us know in advance. We will set up a revolving presentations slideshow if you and send us a one page ppt slide.

So sign up here [https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/midwinter-social-tickets-29985162428] and please pass this invite any women you know who currently work in tech, are interested in the idea or a woman interested in meeting more people working locally – the more the merrier!
