Definitely Does Compute – Hackbright Girl Geek Dinner

This summer, Hackbright Academy celebrated our one year anniversary and hosted our fourth Bay Area Girl Geek Dinner.

On Wednesday, August 21 at Pivotal Labs’ San Francisco office, Hackbright Girl Geek Dinner attendees enjoyed Chinese food (dim sum in kari-out boxes) and beverages from Pivotal Labs’ ample supply (there was also a beer fridge and an ice cream fridge!).

Attendees listened to tech talks from Hackbright instructors Cynthia Dueltgen and Liz Howard, as well as Hackbright graduate and Versal software engineer Kelley Robinson. She is currently working as a Scala developer at Versal and for her Hackbright project learned a new language (Go) instead of resting on her programming laurels (Python).

More tech talks were delivered by Hackbright students. Cara Marie Bonar and Meagan Gamache gave a talk together on kernel programming, and Allison Deal (pictured below) talked about her Hackbright project on video processing. Students gave more demos offstage after the talks.
