Who Should Attend?

Can you relate to any of these Chic Geeks? Maybe you’re a little of this and a little of that – a design student, a gentleman programmer, or even a mom who wants to start a business… the point is, you don’t need to be a techie to qualify but if you are curious, brave, and want to support others when it comes to technology and entrepreneurship, Geeky Summit is right for you.

And remember, we welcome ALL genders and encourage the participation of diverse identities traditionally underrepresented in technology.

The Programmer

Hunting down code bugs, getting ideas to work, and discovering new technologies gets you out of bed in the morning. Because the programming industry is disproportionately male-dominated, you want to see more women getting into computer science to offer fresh perspectives, and in turn, drive innovation.
