Whether you code, tinker, use FLOSS in your projects, want to explore open alternatives, or just want to change the world, all women are welcome – from expert to novice, or anywhere in between. Flossie 2013 is a chance to showcase your project, share skills, find inspiration, or talk about something which really interests you. We’re also scheduling plenty of time to network, share and build on ideas, and to meet new friends and old. Both days will contain micro-talks and birds of a feather sessions, as well as longer and more structured workshops and discussions. We will also be showcasing an exhibition of digital artwork.
Who is this event for?
In a word, ‘anyone’. However, the event is organised around a common commitment to celebrating and enabling womens contribution to FLOSS culture. Therefore talks, workshops and exhibitions will be by women only (specifically including trans and genderqueer women) but men are welcome attend the event if they have an interest in the gendering of technology. In particular, Flossie 2013 will be of interest to:
- Women users of FLOSS in digital arts, free culture, and social movements
- Women coders and developers
- Coders and advocates of open knowledge, open data, open education and open research
- Researchers, students and writers
- Women entrepreneurs, not-for-profits, and social innovators
