It has been 5 (!) years since I last participated in the big Geek Girl Meetup unconference in Stockholm. No idea why it took me so long to come back, but hey!
This year, I am going to be part of it again, and I will try to blog and tweet directly from the event.
When? 28th – 29th of May
Where? In the Teknikmuseet in Stockholm, which in itself is an awesome location.
Why participate? Meeting likeminded (nerdy!) people and friends , sharing experiences and knowledge, and getting a great boost of energy and inspiration. That should be reasons enough for ANY girl no matter which age to be part of it!
Geek Girl Meetup has grown since it’s early days in 2008/2009, when I first participated in Stockholm. By now there are many similar events locally in Sweden, but also in big cities abroad, like in Copenhagen, London and Berlin.
In Berlin and other places all over the world you also have the Geekettes, a network of women in tech, who regularly meet for exchange of experiences.
What is it all about anyway? Geek Girl Meetup is a huge network of female professionals or to-beprofessionals some day of many different backgrounds. It doesn’t matter whether you are a techie or a business person, a creative spirit, a designer or a law person for that matter. The combination of all the female participants with their knowledge and willingness to share it with each other, makes the event so successful.
It’s a true boost of energy and creativeness being felt during these days. Many new projects and ideas emerged from Geek Girl Meetup’s unconferences.
Let’s bring it on and see what 2016 holds for us! And no matter what, Geek Girls #ftw!
This year’s motto: Better togetHER !
