Notes from Code(Her) 2016

October 6, 2016

This post was adapted from Jenny Hottle's post, first published on September 18, 2016.

 

Yesterday, I attended the Code(Her) Conference 2016 in Washington, D.C. and had an awesome time connecting with women in the local tech industry. I found out about the conference through Hear Me Code, a community of hundreds of women in tech learning and growing together, and got my friends Alex and Rachael to join me.

 

It was a pretty jam-packed day full of workshops, panels and networking sessions. In the morning, we heard from DC’s chief technology officer, Archana Vemulapalli, before breaking into smaller sessions. I attended three workshops:

  • Yes, You Need a Portfolio! (by Shannon Turner of Hear Me Code)

  • Creating Harmony with UX and Content Strategy (by Kate Henderson and Lindsay Zoeller of Chief)

  • APIs for Journalists and Other Curious Humans (by Rachel Shorey of The New York Times)
