WELCOME to the 4th TECH(K)NOW Day LONDON!  JOIN WOMEN in TECH and WOMEN in STARTUPS on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 09, from 9am to 5pm for a special event on Ada Lovelace Day!

TECH(K)NOW Day


TECH(K)NOW DAY has been organised to provide a place and venue for anyone who identifies as a woman to go and learn new tech skills (see details below).   If you are a woman in tech or a woman wanting to get into tech, then this is for you.   Back in March this year, we held another TECH(K)NOW Day around International Women's Day with the theme - #PressForProgress.  We will continue on with that theme this October 09!

 

Also, if you are a woman founder or woman co-founder of a startup, you can apply for a free exhibition space here >> http://www.bit.ly/techknowdayspace.  If you are at a stage where you are looking to form a startup - then attend and get access to startup advice from some of the companies and organisations that will be present.

 

Tea/Coffee/Pastries/Biscuits will be served for Breakfast (8-9am).  Lunch will also be available as well as Tea/Coffee/Biscuits for the afternoon tea break.

 

ADA LOVELACE DAY - Tuesday, October 09, 2018

Ada Lovelace Day (ALD) is an international celebration day of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM.  Ada Lovelace Day is held every year on the second Tuesday of October.

 

WHO IS ADA LOVELACE?

Augusta Ada King-Noel, Countess of Lovelace (née Byron; 10 December 1815 – 27 November 1852) was an English mathematician and writer, chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage's proposed mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. She was the first to recognise that the machine had applications beyond pure calculation, and created the first algorithm intended to be carried out by such a machine. As a result, she is often regarded as the first to recognise the full potential of a "computing machine" and the first computer programmer.   (Source: Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ada_Lovelace)

ARE YOU AN ALLY?

If you do not fit the profile of the target attendees for this Ada Lovelace Day event, will you be an ally and help us spread the word about this event, by forwarding a link to this page to someone in your organisation or your circle of friends/influence - who might benefit from attending?   (Or if you do fit the profile but can not make it on the day and know someone who might be interested in attending, please pass the link on.)   Thank you very much!

(Also, we have volunteering opportunities for allies (for different roles) - say coaching at workshops, helping during registration, helping spread the word about the event, etc.  Just email us at techknowlondon@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering).

 

WHAT'S IN STORE?

 

HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS

Throughout the day, there will be a whole range of hands-on workshops available for both -

- complete beginners (for you to explore what's out there that you could be learning and find out for yourself if coding is for you)

- experienced developers (for you to explore other technologies/languages you might currently not be familiar with, for example - machine learning, AI, graph databases, AngularJS, messaging bots and a whole range of other topics).

NOTE: In order to receive information on the free workshops (topics, details, schedule, prerequisites), you need to have a valid conference ticket (it's free, so don't dilly-dally :D and book it soon - they will go quite fast!  And don't forget to book your time off from work, too!   Ask your manager, if you have one, if you can book it against training days).

Although there were already several workshops last time, they were all quite popular and oversubscribed, so we're increasing the number of workshops!

 

TALKS

There will also be separate tracks for talks, so if you are not in one of the workshops above, you can listen to interesting talks and speakers about

  • Tech topics (current and emerging)
  • Personal Development
  • Career Development
  • Diversity / Inclusivity / Unconscious Bias

We particularly want to highlight the talk on Career Development (don't miss it!), where you'll learn about

  • Salary negotiation for women (including talks about new regulations coming up on equal pay)
  • Confidently applying for a job you don’t have ALL the skills for (yet)
  • Areas you should consider developing skills in
  • Presenting yourself well in interview
  • How to get the most out of your relationship with your recruiter
  • Re entering the workforce after a break
  • Making your CV stand out

 

CAREER HUB / CAREER FAIR

There will be a career hub where experts will be on had to help you - if you want to have one-to-one conversations about the above career development-related topics.

 

STARTUP SPACE and STARTUP ADVICE SPACE
We will also be featuring a number of women-led startups (meaning the founder or one of the co-founders is a woman).    Want a free exhibition space for your startup?   Apply here >> http://www.bit.ly/techknowdayspace.

There will also be a host of companies/organisations on hand to give advice to women who already have a startup or are thinking of getting started up!

 

Sign up for a ticket so we can send you more information along with the schedule of the hands-on workshops, talks and other activities happening on Tuesday, October 09!



MAKE SURE TO BOOK YOUR FREE PLACE EARLY!

See you on Tuesday, October 09!
