We’re very excited to be making last minute preparations for AdaCamp DC, an Ada Initiative event focused on increasing womens participation in open technology and culture.

We have over 100 invited AdaCamp participants, including Sue Gardner, CEO of Wikimedia Foundation, Sarah Stierch, Wikimedia Community Fellow and advocate for women in Wikipedia, and Joseph Reagle, author of Good Faith Collaboration: The Culture of Wikipedia, together with AdaCampers we introduced on our blog in June.

Coming to AdaCamp?

If you received an invitation to AdaCamp, we’re looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Please contact urgently if you haven’t received attendee information by email, or if you have any remaining questions.

Missed out on AdaCamp?

If you are in the DC area, many AdaCamp participants will be at Wikimania later in the week. Online registration for Wikimania has closed, but onsite registration is possible on 10–11 July (10:00–17:00) and 12 July (08:00–10:00).

We hope to hold future AdaCamps in different locations around the world. If you are interested in attending future AdaCamps or other Ada Initiative events, please check the Ada Initiative blog or subscribe to Ada Initiative email announcements.

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