Women Who Code Atlanta: Code Jam

Time: 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Tech Square Labs
859 Spring Street NW
Atlanta, GA
Website: https://www.meetup.com/Women-Who-Code-Atlanta/events/dppffpyxlbqb/

Come hang out and code on whatever you want (in any language)! If you’re an old hand learning a new language or just getting started on your coding journey, code jam is a friendly and supportive environment for you to develop your technical skills. Why should you put this on your calendar every month?

First, you’ll meet other amazing people. Sometimes you’re the teacher, sometimes you’re the student and sometimes you just offer support! It's a fun, no-pressure environment where we can hang out and code while keeping each other motivated. Second, we’re going to start some group projects, and this is a great place to find out the details, form a working group and meet to compare notes. Our members range from newbies to senior engineers and leadership, and everything in-between! If you want more information, this is a great time to come ask questions.

ACM Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing


Time: TBA
Location: Hyatt Regency, 9801 International Drive
Orlando, FL
TAPIA 2018 Registration Opens in May
Scholarships are Available
Registrtion/Fees: http://tapiaconference.org/registration/
Phone: 407-284-1234
Website: http://tapiaconference.org/

The Tapia conference is designed to acknowledge, promote and celebrate diversity in computing.

The goal of the Tapia Conferences is to bring together undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, researchers, and professionals in computing from all backgrounds and ethnicities to:

  • Celebrate the diversity that exists in computing;
  • Connect with others with common backgrounds, ethnicities, disabilities, and gender so as to create communities that extend beyond the conference;
  • Obtain advice from and make contacts with computing leaders in academia and industry;
  • Be inspired by great presentations and conversations with leaders with common backgrounds.

  • Diversity: Roots of Innovation. The 2018 Tapia conference theme reminds us to celebrate the historical role of diversity with respect to STEM innovation, and declare it as a standard essential set of roots for computing innovation in the future. Conquering computing challenges going forward -- while ensuring benefits across all global citizens–whether it is artificial intelligence, blockchain, cybersecurity, or a range of other subjects, requires the resources, talent, and experiences from a diverse collective. Just as risk-taking, perseverance, and creativity have been embraced as cornerstones of innovation, organizations and society must treat diversity with the same reverence. This should be reflected in leadership, strategies, and policies charging forward.

    Scholarship Recipients should wait to receive their registration code and logistics information before registering and/or booking travel.

    When you attend the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS), you join one of the largest communities of underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Students attend this conference to present their research, enhance professional development skills, explore graduate schools, and network. Research faculty and program directors play an essential role in mentoring students and learning strategies for facilitating student success.

    During the four-day conference, over 2,000 students from over 350 colleges and universities participate in poster and oral presentations in twelve STEM disciplines. All undergraduate and postbaccalaureate student presentations are judged and those receiving the highest scores in each scientific discipline are given an award during the closing banquet.

    Registration will be required for the 2018 Festival Expo. Check the website soon to register for the free Expo.
