I am writing to let you know of a couple of upcoming events that may be of interest to you.
The first is the Tassie Girl Geek Coffee event. Girl Geek Coffees (GGC) is a meet and greet open discussion group, for women in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Information Technology, Multimedia, Computer Games and related disciplines (e.g. Engineering, Mathematics and Science). Their next meeting is in Hobart next Tuesday 23 June from 6pm. Event details: GGC Hobart Mid-Year Meetup
The other event is GovHack (http://www.govhack.org/) from July 3-5. GovHack is an annual open data competition held all over Australia and New Zealand. It is a team event with some great prizes.
