New application deadline for AdaCamp Berlin: 15th August
This Friday (15th August) is the final deadline to apply to attend AdaCamp Berlin. We had intended to keep applications open until 1st September, but have gotten so many excellent applications that there’s already a waitlist! AdaCamp Berlin is a 50 person unconference in Berlin, Germany on 11-12th October, 2014.
If you would still like to attend AdaCamp this year and can make it to Bangalore, applications for that event are still open. AdaCamp Bangalore is occurring on 22-23 November and women from any region may apply.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! AdaCampers include journalists, writers, fans of all sorts, knitters, researchers & academics, community managers, and many others. AdaCamp is more interesting and satisfying when we have attendees from a wide range of open technology and culture fields.
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.
Your organization has the opportunity to sponsor AdaCamps in 2014 and reach women leaders in open technology and culture on three continents. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about becoming a sponsor.
