Happy new year! Our 2015 programme of events kicks off with a talk about women in software engineering with Rabeb Othmani:
Rabeb is a software engineer working currently for Microsoft as part of the MixRadio client development team. She identifies herself as a UX developer focusing on Microsoft technologies such as WPF, Windows Phone and Windows. She is also Imagine Cup worldwide finalist, a Microsoft certified Technology Specialist, Microsoft Student Partner Alumni and Microsoft Career Factor Windows Phone Idol.
Rabeb is also qualified as a STEM ambassador working closely with schools and students to encourage them into STEM and especially engineering.
When she is not coding, Rabeb is cooking or travelling.
The event is very kindly sponsored by ClusterHQ who will be providing the venue and food plus a very brief talk about what they do - they are also hiring right now so if you are interested in a career change for the new year this will be the perfect opportunity to come to their workspace at the Engine Shed and see what they are like!
As always, men are not excluded from our events but must be accompanied by a girl geek.
