Join us April 23-27- 2018 for the Women in Tech Regatta Week.

The Regatta is a curated collection of events, workshops and conversations designed to connect women in tech to mentors, peers, resources and to the power of community. We will dwell in the realm of what’s possible, rather than simply what is.

Sessions are grouped thematically and each session will be hosted at one of five ports. Create a personalized itinerary aligned to your specific interests, by checking off the sessions below.

Monday Kick off opening party– Resource reception featuring over 30 orgs from our vibrant city that support women and girls in tech- all during one night, under one roof.
Port Tracks: During the week we’re hosting over 30 breakout sessions across the city. Sessions are grouped thematically and each session will be hosted at 1 of 5 ports. 
  • Port 1: Tech Mavens (keeping you relevant in tech)  We’ll be talking about everything from AI, to Crypto-Currency, to growing as a coder.
  • Port 2: Inclusive Culture (Allyship)  The focus here is on ending gender bias in the workplace & building stronger, more diverse teams.
  • Port 3: Leadership (CEO’s & Startups)  We’ll hear from a diverse group of CEO’s and startup leaders who will discuss multi-dimensional leadership, building credibility and avoiding isolation.
  • Port 4: All about YOU (Build your story)  This is all about you- being bold,  intentional and building resilience. Pump up your side hustle and put some mojo into your personal brand.
  • Port 5: Career Acumen (Building relationships) Learn about how storytelling, mentorship, and meaningful connections will help you meet your career goals and win the race.
Closing Celebration:  Enjoy the last day of the WiT Regatta Week at the Progressive Closing Celebrations.

Connect, nibble & sip with new and old friends.

She's Coding
Founder & CEO
Software Engineer with 15+ years of experience, currently working as such at L1NDA, and running She’s Coding, a nonprofit for women in tech. Looking to build connections and collaborations with people, organizations and companies that support that mission and want to join along in some way.

More about me:
Computer scientist with a research and development background in vertical search engines, semantic technologies and web services (MSc in CS from University of Innsbruck, Austria). Worked as a researcher at the Semantic Technology Institute Innsbruck, before joining a young startup, ‘seekda’, where I helped build a semantic search engine for Web Services/APIs. As Head of Research I led a small research & development team and managed seekda’s participation in several national and international research projects.

In my former lives I was a journalist, tried my hand in film editing, completed a bank training and worked shortly as a stock dealer. Some of these stints were more exciting than others, but they all allowed me to grow and learn a lot in a short time. With Computer Science, I have found my real passion – I love being able to be creative, work in great teams and build solutions to all kinds of problems, big and small.

After moving to Seattle in 2010 I concentrated on expanding my technical know-how and becoming a full-stack developer. I completed an intense Ruby on Rails bootcamp and worked as Ruby on Rails contract developer before joining Patent Navigation / Jolt Labs as Senior Software Engineer, working with Python/Django and Ember.js. I became actively engaged in the Seattle tech community through a number of women in tech related groups, most importantly through She’s Coding.

I relocated to Amsterdam end of 2018, where I joined the awesome L1NDA development team, and work on building up the European arm of She’s Coding.
