Women's Tech Talk Series - AWS, Cognitive Services



Please RSVP: http://bit.ly/2ADeNvo

WHY WE'RE HERE So many of us are building amazing things at work and in the community - let's share, recognize and applaud our badassery. Our intent is to create speaking opportunities for gender minorities while holding a safe space for this technical learning community. We are thrilled to host women and non binary speakers both local and from across the country. Talks are geared towards a technical audience compromised of respectful, curious, supportive individuals who care deeply about technology. We start promptly at 5:15 and end by 6:30, kiddos welcome. Food and drink provided courtesy of Microsoft's Cloud Developer Advocacy Team.

Paige Bailey: Well-Aged Bacon: Guessing Kevin Bacon's Age

Paige is Cloud Developer Advocate at Microsoft. When she's not sitting in front of glowing rectangular screens at work, she absolutely adores hiking / kayaking / mountain-biking around Texas' glorious Green Belt; resuscitating Apples; and (poorly!) attempting to play bass guitar. Personal passions are sustainable energy and climate change research; STEM education reform; and empowering local governments via data science. @DynamicWebPaige Pronouns: she/her/hers
