Lightning Talks Workshop

Have you ever thought about given a technical talk but we’re too nervous to follow through? Are you interested in learning from and getting to know with other technical women? Do you want some accountability to learn about something new? Are you a student who wants to gain confidence talking about technical subjects?

During this event, Codecinella members gathered to brainstorm and prep presentation topics then presented them to the group.  Continue reading “Lightning Talks Workshop”

Secure Coding for Developers

First there were some stolen credit card numbers, then thousands and now millions of them have been stolen from security breaches. That is just the tip of the iceberg of the data theft that has happened. Did you know that Application Security starts with secure code, a language-agnostic practice to develop software that guards against security vulnerabilities? In this talk, we will be discussing Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)’s top security issues that developers need to incorporate in their development practices. Some examples of security vulnerabilities in code include SQL injection, cross-site scripting, and insecure direct object references.

Current interests include brain patterns for spatial reasoning and interconnected thinking with applications to machine learning and approximate computing. She is on the Wisconsin Executive Advisory Board for FIRST and finds it very hard not to over-contribute on her kids robotics projects. Continue reading “Working the System: Chip Design”

What is Tableau, and Why Should I Care?

Maybe you’ve seen pretty graphics and pictures representing data. Maybe you’ve heard about ‘Tableau’ but have no idea if that means some fancy table in French, something artistic involving paint, or some new technical tool that you might want to learn. Maybe you’ve overheard ‘Data Viz’ and wondered if that has anything to do with user interface design, big data, predictive analytics, data exploration, full stack development, software, databases or whatnot.
