Local non-profit Women in Technology will be holding hands-on technology sessions at technology event “THAT Conference” August 6-8 in Wisconsin Dells. Billed a “summer camp for geeks”, THAT Conference brings together 1,000 software developers from the midwest to learn and collaborate. The Women in Technology group will be working in conjunction with Microsoft Tech Spark, who is supplying 75 Adafruit circuit boards for hands-on learning. Volunteers from Women in Technology will guide campers of all ages through coding exercises that leverage the circuit boards. Registration for THAT Conference is still open at https://www.thatconference.com/. The mission of Women in Technology Wisconsin is to attract, grown and retain women and girls in technology-related careers.
