We will start with food and drinks at 6:00 PM, then move upstairs to a comfy sitting area to hear from our guest speaker and discuss the format of future events.
The goal of these events is to build a community for Girl Geeks (and their invited male friends) to get together, learn and talk about technology. All levels of expertise and age groups are welcome, and we hope to see representatives from many areas such as math and science, new media, graphic design, dev, tech, and more.
