unleash the engineer within you
DevPulseCon is a two-day technical and educational micro-conference focused on women engineers, developers, users, administrators and geeks working in industry and academia. In 2018, we are expanding to include Product Managers, Program Managers, Project Managers and Engineering Managers to elevate the conversation and learning. The conference was founded in 2015 (as Coder[xx]).
It includes one day of technical talks and "safe-space" panel discussions on "uncomfortable" (no social media allowed during panels) topics and a second day of purely technical hands-on workshops developed and taught per CodeChix Hands-on Workshop Guidelines.
We are strong proponents of Open Source software and hardware (and anything else that qualifies in this light).
This is the first and only conference catering to full-time women engineers which provides purely-technical educational training on cutting edge technology as well as providing a "safe space" for the women to discuss issues and solutions to culture that affects technical women across the industry. Our primary target audience is women engineers and developers as well as product, program and project managers. We, also, provide a quota of tickets to selected men engineers to provide exposure to issues we discuss and build allies.
Our primary goal is to retain the fantastic, driven and brilliant women engineers that are lost in the folds of companies and teams but whose contributions build and sustain the foundations of our industry.
