Please join us online for the NoVA Drupal meetup on Tuesday, May 18th at 7 pm for a presentation by Ashraf Abed of Debug Academy entitled Elevating your skills: Clear intro of tools & tech to learn next.
As a site builder or content editor looking for continued career growth, what should you learn next? In this meetup, Ashraf will provide a clear explanation of key tools and technologies and talk about how learning them aligns with common career paths.
Looking at Drupal conferences and videos you'll find talks on React, docker, VueJS, Symfony, Twig, and much more. Picking the 'right' thing to learn feels impossible! Where do I start? What's the benefit of each topic? Where will it take my career? Will I enjoy it?
We'll also learn a bit about each, so that they stop being buzzwords, and begin forming the foundation for greater knowledge.
This talk represents a chance to learn about these topics (and more):
- Object-oriented programming
- React & VueJS
- And more!

7th Annual Lesbians Who Tech & Allies San Francisco Summit
We all know that familiar feeling of meeting someone in a work setting, knowing she’s a lesbian, and trying to work it into a conversation and make that connection. We’re about making that happen: connecting lesbians and building a network of colleagues, associates and friends in the industry.
Outside of Ellen, Rosie, Melissa, and now Tammy, what other mainstream lesbian role models can most people name? We need more examples of lesbian leaders and that means we need to come out as the amazing, successful people we are.
Lesbians are women first, and right now women are some of the most gifted folks in technology, yet there are far fewer of us than there should be (women account for 1 in 15 people in STEM fields). Because there aren’t enough women, women are rarely quoted as experts by the mainstream media and blogs, on panels, etc. And add the element of being lesbian, it’s equally important for us to represent women, and out women, for our communities.
There are so many groups who are fighting for our rights, and they need our support. Lesbians Who Tech provides a platform to raise awareness of their work and connect these organizations to queer women in the tech community.
