happy happy chilly new year! hope you all had some down time.
it's time to hit the ground running again & we present you with the next meetup, focused on the gender imbalance in CS education & job market. this topic seems to be getting a lot press lately. fred wrote a great blog about it a week ago (http://www.avc.com/a_vc/2013/12/girls-who-code.html).
i think we all recognize that there is a gap in enthusiasm & participation, so let's move on from that. now is the time to address it with specific ideas, tricks, strategies, big or small. we will have a few speakers from the field (and a student as well) talking about what we can do to introduce, encourage, familiarize & eventually federate a new wave of female rockstars.
if you have any suggestions, please don't hesitate to reach out. [masked]. we want to constantly improve the meetups so we have a diverse group of participants & interesting topics to discuss, so pass this along & bring a friend. as always, beer & sandwiches will be served :)
