🤘 Women Who Code @ SLACK 🤘

  • Slack HQ and other locations 1028 Hamilton Street Vancouver, BC, V6B 2R9 Canada (map)

Women Who Code is partnering with Slack, who is flying up three rock-star techlords, Brenda Jin, Roo Harrigan + Jen Long, from their SF HQ. 

Brenda will tell you how she became a software engineer without a formal degree, while illuminating why gender disparity in technology is not just a pipeline problem. Roo will be walking through the purpose of the Slack platform, introducing the different ways a developer can leverage API's to build apps for teams, and live-code an incoming webhook example in Python to illustrate notifications in Slack. And Jen will walk through some of the ways that her teams at eBay, Google, MTV, and Slack have gotten past bringing different skillsets and perspectives to a project and moved into that magical state of deep partnership.
