The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) Colorado Aspirations Computing Award was held on April 27. I was honored to be invited to speak about my experiences as a woman in technology to the brilliant young minds being celebrated that night. Forty high school girls were recognized for their outstanding achievements in computing. The Aspirations in Computing Awards is a national-program with the aim of encouraging young women to become and stay active in technology.
I spoke on what it's like to be a developer at a consulting company as awesome as Quick Left, and tried to share with them how exciting a career in technology can be — it's not just sitting at a desk writing code all day! If you're intereseted in seeing more, check out my slide deck.
It was truly inspiring to see how much they've already achieved. I wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors!
