Happenings

Melbourne has a thriving tech culture and there is no shortage of interesting and inspiring panel discussions and talks. I regularly attend Zendesk's Software Art Thou?  talk series,  Convergence Science Network, talks, Melbourne Data Science meet-up events,  General Assembly's monthly design talks, Startup Vic events, Girl Geek Dinners, Fuck Up Nights: Stories of Failure, and Carlton Connect Initiative and Melbourne Accelerator Program (MAP) events. I'm always looking for new ways to expand my horizons and recently joined the PyLadies, Machine Learning & AI Meetup, UX Gatherings, and Design Thinking & Business Innovation meet-up groups. I'm also on the Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) – Melbourne Organising Committee. RHoK matches organisations that have a social impact with skilled technologists that are keen to tackle challenges facing society. We facilitate workshops, hackathons, and ongoing open-source development. I serve as a RHoK buddy and tech mentor, and liaise between change makers and technologists.
