The Ada Initiative is thrilled to welcome our first Platinum sponsor of AdaCamp in 2015: Puppet Labs! Puppet Labs is a leader in IT automation. Their software helps sysadmins automate configuration and management of machines and the software running on them.
“Ada Initiative’s mission of encouraging women to be involved with open source technology is helping to create better technology — and a better tech culture. This mission aligns with our commitment to increasing diversity and access for all, throughout the tech community. We’re proud to be Platinum sponsors of the Ada Initiative’s four AdaCamps this year.” – Luke Kanies, founder and CEO of Puppet Labs.
For our part, the Ada Initiative is proud to welcome Puppet Labs as a sponsor of AdaCamp for the third year running; their support of AdaCamp and of women in open technology and culture is crucial to our mission to change the culture for the better.
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 over two days to build community, share skills, discuss problems with open tech/culture communities that affect women, and find ways to address them.
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. The first AdaCamp of 2015 will be held in Montreal on April 13–14, followed by events in New Zealand and in the San Francisco Bay Area.
