Girl Geek Dinners (Meetup)

This is a Meetup event, run by the organisers of Girl Geek Dinners and held at The Stable. The following is from the Meetup page which you can find by following the tickets link at the bottom (free event, just need to register).

We would like to announce that finally we believe we may have spotted enough women either in tech or interested in the subject to justify setting up a GirlGeekDinner WSM chapter!

The Stable will be hosting the first one on the 4th October. If you don’t know the place then its certainly time you paid a visit – it’s a great coworking space. The Heritage cafe next door is run by businesswoman and powerhouse performer Sarah Evans (the UK's number one Adele tribute act, no less). It's also round the corner from the beach and from vegetarian cafe, Loves, run by Anna Southwell, a woman with her finger in many artistic, musical and cultural pies. They also sell halloumi chips. What’s not to love about The Stable and surrounds.

This is for all women (and men by invite) that are tech curious .. we can demystify the tech world for you and you can see what great fun it is as an industry to work in or simply make use of if its social media for tourism etc or for the tech converted wanting to geek out with others!

For this starter we plan to supply you with some cider and food kindly sponsored by Oracle and introduce ourselves and some other women that you should get to know.
