Brenda Wallace of LinuxChix NZ has founded geekspeakr.com, a global website where women who can speak on technical topics (not limited to Linux or Free Software) can list themselves, to assist conference organisers in finding women to speak at their conferences
If you are willing to give talks on technical subjects, create a profile at geekspeakr.com.
The next Amsterdam Girl Geek Dinner is on April 10. The
speaker will be Fabienne Serriere presenting the topic "Hardware Hacking
on the Cheap!"
Another fun event is the seventh Eclectic Tech Carnival, also in Amsterdam, from May 25 until the 31st:
New Zealand Girl Geek Dinners started in Auckland in November 2007 as an offshoot of the London Girl Geek Dinners. We now have a group started in Wellington and coming soon, a group in Christchurch.
The aim of these get-togethers is to provide a welcoming atmosphere and a platform for learning in an informal environment, to make technology accessible and to be of interest to all age groups and all people, particularly women, whatever their background. It is an opportunity for like-minded 'girls' to talk about technology over food and drinks.
