Rails Girls Summer of Code – Open for Applications!

We have just opened our applications for students and we are now trying to get in touch with as many initiatives as possible to help us spread the word about our program.

As you may have heard, RGSoC is a three month paid scholarship where women all over the world work on open source projects with technical support of coaches and mentors. Our program is not limited to Ruby on Rails, we have projects in different languages. We believe that RGSoC might be a logical next step for someone who started learning programming, whether they’ve been to a workshop, a study group or learned by themselves.

Our goal is to encourage women to work in the area of technology, at the same time we support open source development. Since 2013, we have already trained 106 students in 23 countries. The most amazing thing is that 90% of the students are still working in tech, whereas 8% have founded their startups.

The deadline for applications is April 10th (here) and we have amazing projects to contribute to this year.

Save the date: EU Code Week 11-17 October 2014

Bring your ideas to life with #coding

The second edition of EU Code Week will take place 11-17 October 2014.
Millions of children, parents, teachers, entrepreneurs and policy makers will come together
in mass events and classrooms to learn programming and related skills.
The idea is making coding more visible, demystify these skills, and bring motivated people
together to learn.
Go to http://codeweek.eu to learn more and find your nearest event

This is a grassroots initiative by young advisers to Neelie Kroes, and has attracted the
support of coding and education movements like CoderDojo and RailsGirls and of major tech
and IT companies who are all helping bring coding to millions of children for example by
offering coding taster sessions, by developing learning modules and helping to train
teachers . Companies including Rovio (Angry Birds), Microsoft, Google, Telefonica, Liberty
Global and Facebook are backing EU Code Week, many of them as part of their commitment
to the Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs

European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes says: “Our lives are digital now, so the
younger generations in particular need digital skills like coding. In the near future it will be
critical for good jobs and essential for starting a business.

Alja Isakovic, from Slovenia, one of the organisers of Code Week EU says: “Technology is
shaping our lives and we should not let a minority decide what we use it for and how we
use it. We all can do better than just sharing and liking. With coding you can bring your
ideas to life, make and build things that will bring joy to others.”

How can you participate in EU Code Week?
• Kids/teenagers/adults can participate in coding events
• Coders can organise workshops in local schools, hack spaces or community centres
• Teachers who code can hold coding classes, share their lessons plans, organise
workshops for colleagues
• Teachers who don’t code can organise seminars or invite parents or students to
teach each other coding
• Parents can encourage their kids to participate in a coding workshop
• Businesses and non-profit organisations can host coding workshops, lend their
staff as coaches in a “back-to-coach” action, organise fun coding challenges for
students or offer sponsorship for coding events
• Everyone who participates in a coding activity can tell us about their experience and
inspire others!

Why is coding important?
Each and every interaction between humans and computers is governed by code. Whether
you create a web app, follow GPS directions when driving or wish to revolutionize social
interactions. Programming is everywhere and fundamental to the understanding of a hyperconnected
world.

Basic coding skills will also be needed for many jobs in the nearest future. More than 90%
of professional occupations nowadays require some ICT competence. Moreover, ICT
practitioners are a key pillar of the modern workforce across all sectors of the European
economy, with demand growing annually by 3% and the number of graduates from
computer science not keeping pace. As a result many open vacancies for ICT practitioners
cannot be filled, despite the high level of unemployment in Europe. If we do not
appropriately address this issue at a European and national level, we may face a shortage
of up to 900,000 ICT professionals by 2020.

Making ICT careers more attractive is one of the objectives of the European initiative
“Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs”, a European multi-stakeholder partnership that aims at
facilitating cooperation among business, education providers, public and private actors to
address the mismatch in digital skills in the European labour market also by modernising
education.

Kiwicon 7 Girl Geek Dinner: The Venue

Wow! We’ve already sold 38 tickets in less than a week! Time for a sneak peek at the venue for the evening:

This event is being run in the Exhange Atrium, a shared space that joins Allen and Blair Streets, right in the heart of Wellington’s Courtenay quarter.It’s a very flexible space which can easily accommodate us for dinner, while still retaining cozyness and character.We have exclusive access to the Atrium for the entire evening thanks to the adjoining Monsoon Poon restaurant, who are catering us for the evening.

The Atrium is licensed so there will be a limited selection of alcoholic and and non alcoholic beverages available at a cash bar inside the venue (no eftpos facilities in the atrium sorry, so please bring cash with you), with the full bar just next door for anything on their drinks list. There’s also a coffee machine at the full bar.

Guests who are under the legal drinking age are still very welcome to attend, you just can’t drink alcohol.

We do encourage guests to stay after the event’s main proceedings are over and take full advantage of having the space to yourselves for the night.

Access is via the Allen Street entrance to the Atrium, to the right of Household Linens (17A Allen St). There’s a few steps up into the Atrium through this entrance, or there’s ramp access via an alternate entrance also on Allen Street. These will be locked externally for the night before the event begins for venue security.

Bathrooms are available through in the main restaurant, which are wheelchair accessible.

It’s close to Wellington’s bus routes and taxi stands. There is on street parking on nearby streets, which is metered until 8pm on Friday nights.

A link to Google maps of where the venue is here.

We’ve aimed to pick a flexible venue suitable for dining and presentations, that’s situated close to the Friday Kiwicon events. How did we do?

Merrin makes internet at Rabid, is technically a full-time design student, and is full of crazy ideas about making things better for people.

Speakers for GGD this Friday

We have two fantastic speakers lined up for this Friday:

Liz Henry, who is Kiwicon’s keynote speaker, is flying over from San Fransisco for the ‘con. Liz sports purple hair just to confuse evolutionary psychologists, tries to cause very specific trouble, and looks just swell in a tuxedo. She’s been writing on the internet since 1990, which is longer than some of you have been able to dress yourselves. Somehow, she still has hope for humanity. http://bookmaniac.org/

Our second speaker, Laura Bell, is also speaking at Kiwicon AND running the Surviving Kiwicon 101 briefing at 5pm on Friday at Little Beer Quarter which we’d definitely recommend. “A shy and retiring wall flower…” is one of the many phrases that have never been used to describe Laura. Since moving to NZ in 2011, she founded and runs in2securITy as well as working as a security consultant for Lateral Security. She knows what free time and hobbies are, she read about them in a book somewhere. It had a lot of pictures. http://www.in2security.org.nz/

Remember, we kick off at 6:30pm in The Guest Room at The Southern Cross

See you all on Friday!

Only 7 tickets left!

UK: Calling all cyber security girl geeks!

Listen up girls – how would you like the chance to flex your cyber security skills by playing exciting competitions designed by industry leaders like HP, Sophos and Cassidian? What about the chance to win career-enhancing prizes like IT training programmes or even a trip to the top-secret Government Communications Headquarters?

Let us introduce you to Cyber Security Challenge UK – a series of national competitions designed to give you a taste of what it’s like to be a cyber security professional and inspire you to get involved in the ever-expanding industry.

Now in its third year of competitions , the Challenge is on a mission to spread the word about why cyber security is such a fulfilling and varied career and help talented people get their first cyber security jobs. It is sponsored by some of the UK’s most prestigious public, private and academic organisations who design competitions and offer once-in-a-lifetime prizes.

Cyber crime costs the UK government an estimated £27 billion every year, affecting everyone from large corporations to SMEs to the individual woman on the street. The threat is growing – Jonathan Evans, MI5 Director General recently highlighted cyber attacks as one of four top global risks to UK. This means it is even more important to get the most talented techies in place to protect our online networks.

As we all know, the IT industry sometimes struggles to represent the hundreds of talented and skilled women in its community – cyber security is not altogether different. But, we also know, you are out there! Now is your chance to  prove just how good your technical skills are by taking part in one of Cyber Security Challenge UK’s competitions and get your hands on over £100,000 worth of educational, career enabling prizes such as internships and training courses. Oh and spread the work to all the other girlie geeks you know!

All you need to do is register online to receive updates on new competitions: https://cybersecuritychallenge.org.uk/registration/
