The Ada Initiative is pleased to welcome silver sponsors Simple and New Relic, bronze sponsor Spotify, and supporting sponsor Pinboard as the first sponsors of our 2014 AdaCamps. AdaCamp is a conference dedicated to increasing women’s participation in open technology and culture. In 2014, the Ada Initiative will hold three AdaCamps located in technology hubs on three continents: Portland, Oregon, USA; Berlin, Germany; and Bangalore, India.
Simple is a bank that offers all electronic consumer banking services integrated with budgeting and savings tools.

Spotify makes it easier to discover new music, share music with friends, and follow your favorite artists. Spotify uses Python extensively and hosts PyLadies meetups at their offices. Spotify has engineering offices in New York, San Francisco, and Gothenburg and is hiring.
Pinboard is a bookmarking and personal archiving site (“Social Bookmarking for Introverts” is their tagline). Pinboard’s design is about speed and functionality with a focus on personal management and archiving. In addition to bookmarking and archiving your favorite web sites, Pinboard runs one of Twitter’s wittiest accounts. Built by Maciej Cegłowski in the summer of 2009, Pinboard had just over 22,000 active users in 2013. Ada Initiative is a happy Pinboard user.
On behalf of women in open technology and culture, we thank Simple, New Relic, and Pinboard for their generous support.
AdaCamp is a conference dedicated to increasing women’s participation in open technology and culture: open source software, Wikipedia-related projects, open data, open geo, library technology, fan fiction, remix culture, and more. AdaCamp brings women together to build community, share skills, discuss problems with open tech/culture communities that affect women, and find ways to address them.
In 2014, the Ada Initiative will hold three AdaCamps located in technology hubs on three continents: Portland, Oregon, USA; Berlin, Germany; and Bangalore, India. Applications to AdaCamp Portland are now closed. Applications for AdaCamp Berlin and Bangalore will be open soon.
