We had a lovely Girl Geek Dinner in April at BJ’s Restaurant. We had a wide range of attendees: industry, students, education. There were some great conversations!
Wendie and I have decided, based on the feedback from the dinner in February, to have monthly Girl Geek Dinners. We’ve decided to host Girl Geek Dinners of the second Wednesday of every month. Mark you calendars from 6-9 pm for the rest of the year!
- May 12th
- June 9th
- July 14th
- August 11th
- September 8th
- October 13th
- November 10th
- December 8th
The locations (except for May and June) have yet to be determined.
From my Facebook and Twitter poll, Boulder was the preferred choice for the May Girl Geek Dinner. If you’re in Denver, don’t worry! I’m planning on having the June Girl Geek Dinner at the Denver Tech Center. If you have any thoughts on where we can have it in the DTC, please email me at COGirlGeekDinner@live.com. The May GGD would be a great chance to get know a fellow Girl Geek and carpool to Boulder.
Here are all the details for the May Girl Geek Dinner (I’ll do a dedicated blog post for the May GGD as well).
- When: May 12th 2010, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Based on feedback from members, you really want to get to know each other. Lightning talks are a great opportunity for casual talks on a variety of subjects. We would love to hear what you are passionate about or anything you’d like to teach us! Since we’ll be in a restaurant, there won’t be normal presentation supplies available, so please no slide decks. If you would like to a Lightning Talk (I hope you do, it’s a great way to introduce yourself and impart knowledge!) or have any questions please email me, COGirlGeekDinner@live.com.
