SaturdayApr 8 2017Northwest Regional Women in Computing Conference
The Northwest Regional Women in Computing (NWrWIC) Celebration focuses on empowering and encouraging women to enter the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields, particularly computer science. The conference brings together students from universities and high schools, with industry leaders from the private and public sectors to engage and inspire the next generation of leaders to play an active role in shaping the future of computing and technology.
The 2017 conference will focus on Internet Security in Our Evolving World. Our mission is to encourage women to pursue and build successful careers in computing and technology by improving their educational experience and engagement with industry leaders. With less than 30% of STEM jobs filled by women, the industry is lacking full representation of the world’s views. This lack of diversity inhibits industry’s innovation potential. Our effort recognizes and empowers women who are part of the computing industry and celebrates all who are supporters of them.
If you are the following, then you would want to come:
College professionals, Industry leaders, Tech job seekers, STEM/Technology leaders, Thought leaders, Professors, Teachers, High School STEM students (must be accompanied by guardian), Register for the event at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/nwrwic-2017-tickets-27733352203,

Visual Studio for building .NET Framework apps in Windows Server Core containers and .NET Core in Linux containers.
Steve is a Program Manager at Microsoft, focusing on the end to end development with Docker Containers.
7:15 - Docker Labs
We’re excited to celebrate Docker’s birthday by providing labs and challenges to help everyone learn Docker and welcome new members into the community. We will partner with CS schools, global language communities and local meetup groups to throw a series of events around the world. While the courses and labs are geared towards those who are new to Docker, intermediate, advanced and expert community members are invited to join these Docker Birthday celebrations as mentors to help attendees work through the materials.
Attendees will break into groups (at different tables) and participate in a lab or challenge of their choosing.
8:15 - Wrap up
Are you an advanced user? We strongly encourage Docker users of all skill levels to attend! We need a network of mentors who understand the Docker platform to answer any questions that attendees working through the courses and labs may have.
