Along with several brilliant and inspirational women in computing – Dr Hannah Dee, Dr Amanda Clare, and Dr Sue Black OBE – I was on the radio as part of the BBC Radio Wales Science Cafe’s International Women’s Day special look at the wonderful Ada Lovelace.
This is how the whole ‘I should really get around to starting that website I’ve been thinking about for years’ finally got off the ground. I had the opportunity to go along to this year’s BCS Women Lovelace Colloquium in beautiful Edinburgh. Two of my colleagues at Aber are long-time organisers, and were very awesome to let me tag along as a helper and photographer.
Both Edinburgh and the Colloquium were new to me, and I have honestly fallen head-over-heels for both. I wish I’d known about Lovelace when I was an undergrad, so I can only do my best to make sure that it’s great for our upcoming women in tech.
Next year will be in Sheffield… I will do my best to be there!
