Dinner Zero

The date is set for the first Girl Geek Dinner in Sydney!


Where + When
Date: Thursday 21st February
Time: 6pm

Who is invited?
If you are a geek and a girl or know of one who is willing to escort you then you are welcome and encouraged to come along. There is a technical focus with the intention of having fun and connecting with other women in IT.

The plan
The first dinner is an open mike night. Think of topics that are interesting to you. You don't have to give a talk but you are most welcome to.

Who pays for dinner?
This is our first gathering and we don't have sponsorship yet so you'll pay this time. There is chocolate so we're hoping that is an incentive.

RSVP
RSVP by commenting on this post.

The cafe doesn't accept bookings but we would like an idea of numbers so please RSVP before the event. There is no cut-off date so feel free to turn up on the night anyway. A list of people who RSVP will be added to this post so stay tuned.

Aww, I'm on the RSVP list, but I am so sore and I can't eat much in the way of solids.

I hope another one happens soon -- I will be a developer with Optiver as of next week.
