Women Level Up

Diversity in Tech: Women Level Up is a meetup aimed at empowering software engineers and web developers who identify as female, non-binary, and/or are from underrepresented backgrounds, through education, networking, and mentorship. While there is a plethora of amazing tech meetups available, we noticed a need for something geared towards people who identify as mid-level or have some experience already working as a programmer.

Maybe you graduated from a bootcamp a few years ago and have already had a couple jobs. Maybe you’ve been junior awhile and want to be mid-level. Maybe you’re mid-level and want to be senior. Maybe you want to be the next team lead. We want to help you get there! We intend to build out the technical component of our meetup to really challenge you and level up your skills.

Are your nerves stopping you from achieving your true career potential? Change can be scary but making that next uncomfortable jump can also completely transform your career. During this talk, I will share how I navigated my own untraditional career transition and how embracing my nerves helped me to jump out of my comfort zone and welcome untraditional opportunities. You’ll be craving that feeling of nervousness by the end of this!

close Decrypting Design: Cracking the Code of Usability

Making relevant software starts with understanding the humans using it. Many teams (and products) suffer from a gap in goals between typical design and development roles. Learn how to bridge this gap by aligning on a common goal - the needs of your users. In this introduction to human-centered design, we'll cover the fundamentals of the methodology, and specific techniques that you can use to shift your thinking from system efficiency to user needs
