Ruby on Rails Workshop

Thanks to everyone who contributed and attended the workshop this October. We hope we were successful in hosting an attitude-free, newbie-safe and mama-friendly tech event encouraging women to join the Ruby on Rails community.

Women are a minority in most technical communities, but in open source communities the numbers are even smaller — by a factor of about ten or more.

Moving forward, we encourage our newly empowered programmers to meet monthly and use their skills towards open source projects in a welcoming, collaborative, mixed gendered environment.

Geek Feminism Wiki

Launched last July the Geek Feminism Wiki is “An overview and resource centre about issues facing women in geek communities.”

Seems like they’re trying to be a central repository for all things female geek.  Perhaps they should get together with Personism.com who is compiling a list of women conference speakers.
