I’m excited to attend the 2015 Grace Hopper Celebration in Houston! This is my first time attending GHC and from what I’ve heard, it will be an incredible experience! As the trip quickly approaches, here are a few of the things I’m most looking forward to:
1. Meeting the other 2015 GHC Scholars
I am fortunate to have been selected as a 2015 GHC Scholar sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Over the past few months I have been introduced to many of the other scholars via Facebook, and I look forward to meeting the members of this vibrant cohort in person.
2. Participating in Open Source Day
On Wednesday I will participate in OpenHatch’s Open Source Day project. I’m looking forward to learning about open source projects and becoming a part of the open source community. It’s time to dust the cobwebs off my GitHub account!
3. Taking it all in!
From what I hear from seasoned GHC-goers, the event is an whirlwind of networking, interviewing, inspiring talks, and swag aplenty. I look forward to enjoying all of these aspects of GHC and relishing in this unmatched opportunity to learn and grow as a part of this dynamic community.
See you in Houston!
