Ada Lovelace Day Potluck Unconference

This sounds like it could be fun. If you’re in London Town on Wednesday 24th March and are interested in helping women do more in technology, then why not join the fun? Maggie Philbin and Suw Charman-Anderson will be on hand to kick start the proceedings and then it’s up to the attendees to chip in with what and who they want to talk about.

The potluck bit also refers to the self-catering aspect of it. There won’t be any refreshments provided but everyone who attends can bring their own food and drink to share.


6.00 pm: Arrival, drinks, networking, attendees sign up to talk if you want to.
7.00 pm: Introduction by Suw Charman-Anderson, Maggie Philbin talks about her inspiration
7.15 pm: Unconference! Those who signed up can give a short, 3-4 minute talk about their tech/sci heroine.
8.00 pm: Drinks and networking.

It’s being held at the Centre for Creative Collaboration which is near Kings Cross. Find out more about the event and RSVP here.
