AussieChix microconference in Sydney and Melbourne: October 25 2008
AussieChix aims to help women in the Australian Free Software community participate in the wider community, and one of the ways we'd like to do so is to give women more speaking experience and confidence. Therefore, we organised an informal speaking event for October 2008: an AussieChix microconference.
Date and time
The conference was on Saturday October 25, 2008.
See our schedule of presentations. Speaker slides and video will soon be available.
What is the relationship between the AussieChix microconfence and the LinuxChix miniconferences at linux.conf.au?
They are complementary. The LinuxChix miniconference is part of a prestiguous international event, allowing women from around Australia and the world to meet each other and talk about their projects to the wider linux.conf.au audience. The AussieChix microconference is intended to be smaller and more informal, giving more women an opportunity to gain speaking experience, to hear from each other and to have fun.
Who organised the microconference?
The microconference was organised by Alice Boxhall and Mary Gardiner.
The microconference was hosted by Google Australia in Sydney and Melbourne, with a video conference link-up between the two. Thank you to Google Australia for both venues, and for catering on the day. Particular thanks to Sun-Hee Yeo and Sally-Ann Williams for their help with organisation and on the day.
