Madison Area Technical College
Hey! The first Madison Linuxchix meeting will be going on tonight at Escape Coffee, starting at 6pm. Escape is located on the 900 block of Willy St., and serves up some excellent brew. Come one, come all.|
MadLC supports women in computing and hopes to make great personal and community advancements by the forming of this group. Much like LC Intl, our local members range from rockstar engineers to your average home user. Initial skills are not important — what matters to us is each individual’s desire to learn new technology and do good by both the local Madison community and the global Open Source community. At the meeting tonight, I am hoping to have everyone participate in discourse on technology we want to learn, and how we can apply those things to help ourselves and the local Madison community.
Attendance is not limited to women. All are invited! Men who attend MadLC meetings are assumed to advocate more women in technology fields right off the cuff, and need not fear being lectured on Feminism 101 simply by attending our meetings. Men who join us are assumed to want to teach and learn right along with us.
