I'm excited to say that I will be attending some amazing tech conferences and hackathons this year! I am super excited to be representing myself and Indiana University at these upcoming conference. I am also thrilled at the idea of meeting and learning more at the progressive technology coming out in the world today, along with the progressive ideas that come with it. After having gone to these experiences, I will be updating my page with information.
Grace Hopper is one of the largest gathering of women technologists in the world. There will be many keynote speakers such as Ginni Rometty (CEO and President of IBM ), Latanya Sweeney (Professor of Technology at Harvard), Marc Benioff (CEO of Salesforce), and Megan Smith (Chief Technology Officer USA) and people that have been in technology and understand how the realm of technology benefits us all.

GlobalHack VI is a hackathon that brings together different teams of technology experts such as software developers, graphic designers, technologists, and entrepreneurs from around the world to solve a single civic technology problem centered around homelessness. Hundreds of participants across youth, collegiate, and pro divisions will work in teams to solve this problem by building software solutions over the course of an entire weekend. I will be attending with a group of my peers this year as their User Interface Designer.
INWiC is the Indiana Women in Computing conference which features women around Indiana talking about cutting edge technology and social issues, and is designed for undergraduate and graduate students in computing/technology disciplines.
