A GINormous THANK YOU

Super Thank You

For the Support

…and love at our conference and careers fair last week. We truly couldn’t have done it without the Brilliant Team, volunteers and companies that supported us. So big thanks to Helen Farmer for managing the event with us, Susie King for her continuous support and attention to (every) detail. Our brilliant speakers who gave up their time: Anna-maria Wykes, Helen Lloyd, Kathryn Armitstead, Ben Byford, Elena Hersinger, Joanne Kitson and the wonderful UWE staff.

The companies also for coming along and engaging with the women so wonderfully – the attendees all came out of the room beaming with appreciation from how you engaged with them so you certainly won some support and a big thanks for supporting us!

A list of them and their current openings, we will keep live in appreciation on the career fair sponsors page.

The feedback from the day has been wonderful, so depite the stress of running our first large event since COVID began we are really pleased and hope that it drives some people to consider a career in the industry and to consider roles with the companies that attended.

Girl Geek Dinners Talk is on Data this month

Girls Geek Dinners details for the 29th of April are coming together; full details are on our Girlgeekdinners page. The first speaker announcement is from Anna Wykes on Data Engineering for Data Scientists.

Anna Wykes

Anna is a veteran software & data engineer, with over 15 years of experience. She’s tackled projects from real-time analytics with Scala & Kafka, building out Data Lakes with spark and applying engineering to Data Science. Anna is a senior consultant with Advancing Analytics, helping shape & evolve their data engineering practice. She has a real passion for data and strives to bring the worlds of Software Development and Data Science closer together. Other areas of interest include UX, Agile methodologies, and helping to organize/run local Code Clubs

Subject

A Data Engineer should be Data Scientist’s best friend, but sometimes the 2 roles get mixed up, or pitched against each other. In this session, Anna explores the core responsibilities of a Data Engineer and how proficient Data Engineering can actually make your Data Science projects more fun. We’ll look at what tools and techniques a Data Engineer uses and why they use them. We’ll also look into a history of the techniques/technologies and how they have evolved (and why)

Cyber Security Guide for small businesses

We spotted this from the National Cyber Security Centre, which we thought looked useful Small Business Guide: Cyber Security.

Cyber security needn’t be a daunting challenge for small business owners. Following the five quick and easy steps outlined in the guide below could save time, money and even your business’ reputation. This guide can’t guarantee protection from all types of cyber attack, but the steps outlined below can significantly reduce the chances of your business becoming a victim of cyber crime.

Want some positive news?

We are finding all the ‘who to hate now’ conversation slightly overwhelming as we’re sure you are too. So here’s the latest news from the positive news site:

  • Britain set a green energy record
  • Bee-friendly face masks launched
  • Seeds were sown for a community farm in Manchester

It also gave us an excuse to add a nice bee pic to this page – what’s not to love?
