AdaCamp DC applications close tomorrow, June 22!

Tomorrow (Friday June 22) is the final application deadline to attend AdaCamp DC. Applications are open to people from any region, but we especially encourage people from Washington DC and surrounding areas to apply to attend and take advantage of their local AdaCamp.

AdaCamp is a Ada Initiative event focused on increasing womens participation in open technology and culture. AdaCamp brings together people to build community, discuss issues women have in common across open technology and culture fields, and find ways to address them.

We encourage applications from people who consider themselves “non-technical” or not technical enough. We found that many people assume that AdaCamp is only for coders or computer experts, which is definitely not the case!

AdaCamp DC is a 150-200 person unconference in Washington, D.C. on July 10-11, 2012. It is co-located with Wikimania 2012, the global conference for Wikipedia and related Wiki projects. The best way to learn what the event will be like and who you will meet there is to meet some of the DC AdaCampers on our blog!

The Ada Initiative thanks our AdaCamp DC sponsors for making the event possible.

Thank you to our Gold level sponsor the Wikimedia Foundation.

Thank you to our Silver level sponsors: the Linux Foundation, Intel, Facebook, Red Hat, Collabora and Yammer.
