About AdaCamp


AdaCamp is the world’s only event focusing on women in open technology and culture, and is a project of the Ada Initiative, a non-profit supporting women in open technology and culture. Both are named after Countess Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer. Attendance at AdaCamp is by invitation, with applications open to the public. Attendees will be selected based on experience in open tech/culture, experience or knowledge of feminism and advocacy, ability to collaborate with others, and any rare or notable experience or background that would add to AdaCamp.


A limited number of conference sponsorships are available. Benefits include making a public statement of your company’s values, recruiting opportunities, and reserved attendance slots for qualified employees, depending on level. Contact for more information.
