Its back to school & work plus its conference and meetup season so take a deep breath and read up on the latest goings-on that we know of…
Had a fab day at the weekend on our canal summer trip with the very kind Andy Lunness – whom we helped getting down the caen lock flight in record time with no major incidents or deaths! (now trying to convince him to repaint in our colours with a WTHub badge on the side). Anyone with suggestions for socials get in touch with wthub.org with ideas .. we are considering a bonfire/fireworks event for the next one, all genders welcome!
Our regular Friday, women only networking courtesy of Desklodge continues. Simply join up here F3F and Womens Tech Jobs are available if you want to chat careers or training

Our Monthly Monday Evening workshops offer a range of interesting and useful topics for women in tech.
This month we have Marissa Ellis, strategy consultant and advocate for diversity in tech, facilitating the #IamRemarkable workshop. A Google initiative empowering women and underrepresented groups to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond. Its being hosted by Ben Byford @Framework – a great new co-working space in King Street check it out Framework

Details are here for both the Weston-super-mare (4th October kindly hosted @ the stable Stable, various speakers and sponsored by the Oracle startup cloud accelerator) and Bristol (20th September kindly hosted by @ Gresham technologies with Emily from Oggadoon).
Its conference season and we’ve been asked along to Voxxed Days on the 25th October – so will be there for a chat if you want a friendly face. Early Bird tickets are still available until the 12th September @ £125
