Personal/ Career Development Track:

These talks help develop real-world skills that grow your career and improve your teams. We’ll also include a special emphasis on talks that help women grow themselves as leaders in tech. Topics may include ideas of empathy, rapid prototyping, effective leadership and communication, and mentoring. Attendees will be able to take away simple changes that can improve their day-to-day jobs.

Technical Tracks (web, mobile & emerging):

Technical skills can go from sharing your work-process to demonstrating new technologies The goal of your talk must be to share your knowledge about technical abilities mainly with software developers. If you use a specific language, your talk must be understandable by good developers even if they don’t know the exact language syntax (short snippets or pseudo-code are totally fine).

• A free ticket to attend all conference events, including: all talks, swag, food and parties

We are looking for creative women and allies of all genders working in the Technology field with experiences in soft skills or technical skills.
