Scholarship for Women

Dom Sagolla | July 3rd, 2012 at 10:37

At iOSDevCamp, we’ve always had great participation by women and healthy diversity among participants. We strive to provide a good, safe environment for anyone to attend, learn, and succeed. To improve on our own track record, we again reach out to our extended family.

Our host, eBay’s Women In Technology group, has created a Free Ticket Discount code for use by any female developer, designer, or businessperson for iOSDevCamp 2012.

To inquire, please contact our manager Jennifer Holmes.

We are looking for more people like these two women who will be at this year’s camp:

Meet Jessica Scorpio. She founded Getaround, along with Elliot Kroo and Sam Zaid at our event in 2009. “20,000 lines of code, 2 days, and just 4 hrs of sleep later,” her team won Best Money-making App in our 2009 Hackathon Contest.

Getaround recently won Techcrunch Disrupt NYC, and is now a sponsor of iOSDevCamp. Brilliant work, Jessica!

Meet Alexa Andrzejewski. She wrote to me in 2009 just before iPhoneDevCamp 3, asking if we could help her find a team of developers, and we convinced her to attend. She recruited a team, signed them on the spot, and set about in deep focus to build a functional design. For their efforts and slick demonstration, “Foodspotting Lite” was awarded Best Social iPhone App.

Alexa and Foodspotting are now in their third year, and well-funded. Cheers to Alexa, Ted, and Soraya—may you dine well always.

We are seeking a woman or a panel of women to speak in our side sessions. The talk can be inspirational or technical, or design-oriented.

Our host has provided plenty of space for families and children to spread out, and enjoy the sunny South Bay weather. There is a beautiful koi pond, and grassy knoll nearby which we use for our annual portrait. Let’s set a record with the number of kids this year!

It would be so much more fun if you were there! Won’t you join us?
