The most of you here around knows me ad a member of both Ubuntu and GNOME communities, but today I’m writing in behalf of Codemotion Conference organisation.
I want share and make you aware of a great opportunity for women to show up and getting involved: Codemotion Conference.
Codemotion is the biggest tech conference in Italy and one of the greatest in Europe, open to all languages and technologies. It’s the hub connecting technologies and coders.
We are currently running CFP
We are looking for disruptive proposals ranging from mobile to UX, devops, cloud, big data, gamedev, security, methods, languages, web, Internet of things.
Submissions that do not fit into these categories are also welcome, provided that they are relevant or inspirational to the tech community.
If you have a technical content you wish to share, please consider to apply now
Some facts about 2014:
- 4 main conferences with an average of:
- 8 tracks
- 100 tech talks
- 40% international speakers (10% women)
- more than 7000 attendees across Europe
- more than 100 tech-communities
- more than 350 speakers
- a network of +30.000 developers
We do promote women participation in tech, so please of you want to share some tech contents or if you know someone who could be interested, don’t be shy and apply.
I can assure we are working hard to make the conference the most welcoming experience, and I would be really proud to offer to some other women in FLOSS an opportunity to tread such an exciting board.
Hope to see you around!
Curtains down on FOSSDEM and a new show is already ready to go!
Yesterday I went to the first Codemotion Techmeetup @Luissenlabs, a centre of excellence as start-ups Accelerator in Rome.
After almost an year far from home, it has been a good opportunity to meet some old good friends, among others Paola “wonderpaolastra” Santoro, from GGD-Rome, to whom we talked about Women in tech.
Born from the experience of Javaday, Codemotion is the event open to all (open) languages and technologies. The Italian stage of international tour will be held in Rome, from 9 to 12 April… If you’ll be around it could be interesting come and say “Hello!”. I attended a couple of editions, and I had a talk about Ubuntu some times ago, but I think nowadays Mara Marzocchi and Chiara Russo, the founders couple, gave to the event a more business oriented perspective.
Networking, Gaming and Hackhaton for a conference sponsored by Google, Oracle, Microsoft, IBM, with the participation of international speakers and a huge space for Communities.
C4P is still open till 9 Febrary, and I’m wondering to submit. And you?
