Join us for our June co-hosted in-person and hybrid Codecinella / Women In Tech event in the Bubbler Room at the library in downtown Madison or online via Zoom. We will discuss anything/everything related to Software Architecture, what/why/how, and share our personal experiences and anecdotes.
Let’s get together to chat about what is in our toolkits as developers. We’ll discuss what we use for work vs. what we develop with for fun or side projects and examine what software development tools we have in common and hear about tools or languages we aren’t yet familiar with.

“From Stream Gage to Twitter Feed: innovative data visualizations to engage the public with USGS science”
As the world’s largest water data provider, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) plays a vital role in protecting life and property, monitoring available water resources, and understanding our Nation’s aquatic ecosystems. Disseminating this water data and accompanying science is just as critical as producing it; however, traditional science products are often overlooked by general audiences even though they resonate with technical ones.Continue reading “Innovative Data Visualizations to Engage the Public with USGS Science”

Mobile has outpaced desktop, especially in emerging markets. At the same time, the size of mobile apps has ballooned. Large applications fail to serve the majority of mobile users, who have low-powered devices and unreliable network connections. Progressive web apps can serve mobile users better. We’ll show you how to make PWAs that download almost instantly and work offline while still providing the functionality of native apps. Continue reading “Web Performance”
This talk is designed to help undergraduate female computer science majors imagine a career in the Information Technology profession. Listen to a panel of experts — real Madison women who are working in the technology field — tell their personal stories. Why did they enter the IT field? What do they like about it? What do they dislike? How did they get to where they are now? Audience participants will have a chance to ask questions like ‘How did your education prepare you for your career?’ and ‘What do you wish you had known when you were still in school?’ and ‘Did you have any mentors or others along the way that helped you at critical moments?’ and ‘How do you balance family life with career?’
