By now, I'm sure you've heard of the MSDN Developer Conference coming to Boston on January 22nd (and New York City on Jan 20th). If you haven't, it's $99 for a day's worth of presentations in three tracks covering a host of topics that first got exposure at the Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles last October.
The workshop will run from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (and, yes, guys are welcome!) with a focus on brainstorming ways to to make technology and careers in technology more accessible to women. The cool part of all this is that you'll actually be using Lego® Bricks as a modeling tool to foster personal interaction and networking. And all attendees will receive a Lego Serious Play WomenBuild kit as well. This program was a hit at the PDC as well as at MDC events held earlier this month.
See you in Boston on the 22nd!
