Excerpt

Join us for a meetup, then we'll go to the party together!

Description

Code N Splode is a Portland-based monthly tech meetup supporting the participation of women in the local tech community.

We’d like to meet up with attendees who are regular Code N Splode folks as well as those involved with Women Who Hack, Geek Feminism, Ada Initiative and other gender / diversity-in tech communities. This is a chance for all of us to meet and chat a bit, then head over to the party together.


“Intersectional feminism – fuck yeah!”

    Biography

    Addie is a web applications developer and hobbyist based in Portland, Oregon. This hobbyist nature means she’s currently learning anywhere from 5-20 technologies at once and never loyal to any. Right now she is balancing perilously between four languages (Java, Python, Ruby, Scala), which she loves and hates in equal measure. Things are rarely dull.

    Outside of the tech sphere, Addie is a balance-seeking, karaoke-singing, vegetable-eating cat lady.
