Global Game Jam, Girl Geeks and a digital Uplift

Summary

Global Game Jam, Girl Geeks and a digital Uplift

Global Game Jam from Friday 3rd – Sunday 5th February @ Frenchay Campus

Game Jams are a great way to get to grips with game creation tools, network with new people, and try something brave. There is no pressure – simply create something new, be collaborative, have fun, and eat pizza. To celebrate the new College of Arts, Technology and Environment (CATE) – we’re putting on an extra special GGJ where all CATE students are invited to join in, meet students from across the College and create a new game in just 48 hours. So if you are a coding wizard, animation guru, art/illustration wonder, music/audio wrangler, 3D modelling legend, or just interested in what goes into making a game – we want you.

Girl Geek Dinners

Forgerock

We’re back on it and have some irons in the fire as the saying goes and we have a date with Forgerock on the 26th, sign up via meetup. We’re waiting to confirm the speaker Bio etc but it will be about a journey into tech and there will be a lovely lot of networking with food and drink, what’s not to love? We’re in talks with a chip company for our February event and will be inviting companies to host on the March one. If anyone has a company that would like to host a meetup then feel free to get them to mail us on info@wthub.org.

1446th International Conference on Recent Innovations in Engineering and Technology 18th – 19th January

The idea of the conference is for the scientists, scholars, engineers and students from the Universities all around the world and the industry to present ongoing research activities, and hence to foster research relations between the Universities and the industry. This conference provides opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration.

As a suggestion from one of our lovely members (Thanks Gabs #1!), we have also set up a “buymeacoffee” page for those wanting to give us a small thank-you. Check it out here.

Women’s Tech Hub products

The candidates page advertises the skillsets of the women we have looking for roles in the area (and some of our male allies).
