Krys Freeman (@Blaktivist) Talks @BettaStop @ Women Who Code Lightning Talks

19 Dec

Krys Freeman (@bLaKtivist) discussed her experience in building and launching her first app, BettaSTOP as a non-developer. BettaSTOP is powered by Twilio through text messages and gives users the opportunity to give feedback on the buses they take on AC Transit. Krys came up with this idea through her direct experience riding public transit. When she proposed the idea at a Code for Oakland event, a team of about ten people came together to help her develop the first iteration of the app. (source)

Women 2.0 (@Women2 Discusses) Women Who Code’s (@WWCODE) First Lightning Talks | Krys Freeman (@bLaKtivist) Highlighted

By Elaine Tsai (Organizer, Hack Nights for Beginners)

Lighting Talks

Women Who Code (WWCode) held our first lightning talks event on Tuesday, October 25. The event was filled with excitement, involvement, and proof that there are plenty of women interested in programming, hacking, and all things related to changing the gender gap in the tech industry.

With an amazing turnout rate of over 70 women, the ladies had plenty of time to meet new friends, reconnect over past programming projects and discuss new ideas. Sasha Laundy, founder of Women Who Code, kicked off the event by announcing that over 400 female coders have joined WWCode since it began in late September. She also announced the first WWCode expansion to the South Bay with an inaugural Hack Night at Hacker Dojo on November 14, an amazing accomplishment.

Lightning Talks is an event where women sign up to give a short five minute talk. The topics presented during this event ranged from live coding with Node.js to salary negotiations. Participation and discussion was lively with great questions from the audience and live tweeting with the #wwcode hashtag.

krys freemanSome of the highlights of the night included Judy Tuan’s demo of Portal 2 with the Kinect, Krys Freeman’s talk about her experience as a non-developer in building and launching her first app, BettaSTOP, and Sarah Allen’s thoughts on being a software engineer. After all the planned lightning talks were given, a handful of women stood up and gave their own talks, which ranged from impromptu pitches on projects they were working on to general announcements in the tech industry.

At the end of the night, everyone left with new friends, perhaps a slightly longer Twitter follower list, and new insights into the tech world. We would like to give a big thank you to our sponsors of the event. Twilio provided the food and drinks, and pariSoma donated the wonderful space.

Nine lightning talks were given during this first event.
