Join us for a Girl Geek Dinner on September 18 in downtown San Francisco at the Microsoft Reactor, your neighborhood hub for all things developer and startups! Don’t miss out on tech talks, mixed reality and holographic demos, and more from Microsoft, GitHub, and LinkedIn girl geeks!
Mingle with like-minded women over dinner, drinks, demos plus get a tour of the Microsoft Reactor and learn about their free events you can attend all year round as you level up your tech skills! All ages and genders welcome. Follow the action on social media with #girlgeekxmicrosoft and @MSFTReactor!
“Hacking at the Microsoft Garage” – Kitty Yeung (Microsoft Manager, Microsoft Garage + Creative Technologist)
“Leading a large scale and complex machine learning program at LinkedIn” – Priyanka Gariba (LinkedIn Head of Technical Program Management – Artificial Intelligence)
Charlotte Yarkoni (Microsoft Corporate Vice President, Cloud + AI Division), Chloe Condon (Microsoft Senior Cloud Developer Advocate) and Shaloo Garg (Microsoft Managing Director, Silicon Valley, Microsoft for Startups) will motivate and inspire—and probably make you laugh, too. As women in today’s tech world, we have more opportunities than ever before. And we have created these opportunities ourselves. This is both exciting and scary! Real change is happening, but the fast pace of change can create self-doubt, anxiety, and maybe a bit of imposter syndrome.
Here’s your chance to ask some of Microsoft’s unabashedly female, wickedly intelligent women how they’ve created their dream careers—putting fear and insecurity on the shelf, challenging the status quo, and creating opportunities for other women along the way—and how you can too.
“Mix Reality” – Jane Fang (Microsoft Principal Program Manager Lead) and Jo Ryall (Microsoft Head of Marketing, SF Academy)
“HCAP Studios” – Hannah Bianchini (Microsoft Executive Producer)
Get ready for fun conversations, the latest hands on demos from the Microsoft Mixed Reality + AI team, and a Mixed Reality Capture Studios tour!
“Fake Boyfriend App” – Chloe Condon (Microsoft Senior Cloud Developer Advocate)
“Tech Inspired Fashion” – Kitty Yeung (Microsoft Manager, Microsoft Garage + Creative Technologist)
Clothing as the interface between the human body and its environment can collect data for IoT applications and input data for analysis on the Cloud. These prototypes were personal projects designed and made by Kitty Yeung.
Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT” @microsoft) enables digital transformation for the era of an intelligent cloud and an intelligent edge. Its mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.
