Deadline: Friday May 11, 2018
We are happy to announce that all ticket sales from iOSDevCampDC 2018 will directly benefit Women Who Code DC. iOSDevCampDC has been a community-run conference from the beginning and we have been breaking even every year. This year, we are glad to announce that all the costs for t-shirts, badges, signs, food and drinks will be paid for by Capital One. This is on top of their sponsorship of the Capital One event space in McLean.
We looked around at how we could best use the money we normally get from ticket sales. We have been wanting to encourage more women to join the technology field, particularly in mobile app development.
So we are going to donate all the proceeds from ticket sales to one of the awesome new members of our local tech community, Women Who Code DC! Just like iOSDevCampDC is the local satellite of the umbrella organization iOSDevCamp, Women Who Code DC is the local affiliate of Women Who Code. Women Who Code state on their website: “Your gift also positively fuels our growth, development, and goal of connecting five million women in technology by the year 2019.” We hope our donation will help get Women Who Code closer to that goal even faster, especially in the DC area.
Women Who code (WWCode) is a global non-profit 501(c)3 organization which inspires women to excel in technology careers. We believe that innovation is driven by diversity and that the tech industry will be even better once women are no longer underrepresented.
Women Who Code was founded in 2011 and has since grown to 10,000 members spanning 12 countries. To date, WWCode has produced more than 450 events worldwide, boasts a growth rate of nearly 1,000 members per month, and launches in a new city every week.
Our key initiatives include: technical study groups, hack nights, career development workshops, and panel discussions featuring influential technology experts and investors.www.womenwhocode.com
Our chapter is focused on providing women with tangible programming skills to expand their career opportunities.
We are made up of a lot of study groups that learn anything in the "full stack" of development (aka from the very back end of coding involving networks and security, to the front end involving scripting and styling). Whether you love Python or are trying to learn anything you can - we are a group that allows you to pick and choose whatever fits your learning style!www.womenwhocodedc.com
iOSDevCampDC 2018 is a one-day, one-track conference focused on iPhone and iPad development in the Washington, DC area.
