From Pies to Pizzas! Bath Girl Geek Dinner 2018 #2

Bath Girl Geek Dinners is back and we are enticing our members in for an informal pizza and meetup before BathCamp (which we’re sneaking into after 6.30)  on the 10th May.

We will introduce ourselves, explain the aim of the group and give you all an overview of the support networks in the region for women in Bath working in the Tech Field.

Marianne Wise and Franziska Zuch have brilliantly agreed to take on the task of getting the Bath GGD on its feet which is great.

As we are only booked for the first hour we will concentrate on who’s doing what in the Bath area around the women in Tech

Paul Leader from BathCamp will hopefully pop his head around to introduce BathCamp to you, they have been very actively working to encourage female attendance to their meetups!

 

After that it will be a case of networking, pizza eating, wine drinking and finding out what our members would like us to find speakers for, subjects, suggestions, support (all the S’s it seems!)

Our first event of 2015

Thursday 15th January 2015. The Porter, Bath.

We were very excited to have kicked off Girl Geek’s 10th Birthday year with a hands-on workshop on data hacking from the team at Bath:Hacked.

There was a drinks reception from 6.30pm to catch up with fellow Girl Geeks and welcome new faces to the group. Followed by a presentation, dinner and a hands-on workshop.

Knowing how to glean useful insights from data is becoming an increasingly important skill to have. Leigh Dodds from the Open Data Institute, who also plays an instrumental role in Bath:Hacked events, delivered a presentation and practical workshop on ‘hacking data’ to give us a taster of what’s involved in a typical ‘hack’, the skills involved and how to get started.

Thank you to our wonderful sponsors at Bath Ruby

Bath Girl Geeks join the team at Bath:Hacked

Bath Girl Geeks joined the amazing team at Bath Hacked for their weekend Hack Event on 1st and 2nd November 2014.
The Hack used open data available from the local authority as a basis for the weird and wonderful creations of the weekend! Including Eat a Food for when you cannot decide what to eat in the beautiful city of Bath!

For many of us it was our first Hack, whilst others dove straight in with their developer and coding skills. It was an amazing opportunity for us Girl Geeks to learn more about hacking open data and the end-to-end process of building an application for easy consumption of data.
