Last night the first Coed:Code took place at Campus London. We have been overwhelmed with messages of support and feedback from the event.
The aim of the Coed:Code is to provide a warm, fun and encouraging event looking at systems and infrastructure programming, designed to give diversity in tech a nudge. More of a mixer event, rather than a conference type event, we aim to go beyond the “beer and pizza”, with tasty food, interesting drinks.
From an organisers point of view, it was a breath of fresh air to see such a diverse audience, especially at a systems programming event.
The panel discussion was run by Anne Currie, and was an interactive session with audience participation giving insight into embarking on, sustaining and developing a career in systems programming. Pictured below are the panel of Jenny Mulholland, Yanqing Cheng, Sue Spence and Anne Currie, alongside one of the event organisers, James Governor.
What happens next?
We hope to run these events regularly. Please let us know your thoughts or comments regarding what format this could be.
