2014 has been a conference-filled year. I learned a lot and had great fun.
Here are the conferences I attended. Click for a summary.
I didn’t attend as many talks as I did yesterday, mostly ’cause I’m feeling under the weather.
Those that I did go to were AMAZING!
Favorite quotes from the conference:
There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women. ~ Madeleine Albright
Heads up to all the employers: there is a legion of women who *will* be negotiating their salaries, so budget accordingly. ~ Ruthe Farmer
Every time you don’t ask, you make it harder for every other woman to ask. ~ Matt Wallaert
I absolutely loved Grace Hopper. It’s probably my favorite of out the ones I’ve been to this year.
Hope I get to come back next year!
Leaving this here for inspiration and nostalgia:
Wow, today was totally packed. I went to sooo many talks and panels.
I also got to meet up with Clare! It was good catching up.
There’s a lot of parties happening right now but I think I’m sleeping early tonight.
The day started out SO GOOD!
Shafi Goldwasser presented on crypto. All those zero knowledge interactive proofs and homomorphic encryption made me really miss computer science.
I loved how she used the Count to represent the computationally bounded adversary.
I then went to a presentation by Jamika and Rachel and a workshop by Denise, both of which were AMAZING.
Next up is dinner with Google for all their travel grant winners.
Usually I’m super exhausted by the first day of conferences, but not so for Grace Hopper. I’m still super energetic/excited for tomorrow!
