It’s been a while since we’ve done a meetup and we’ve missed you! We had a special reboot meetup on 27th September at a brand new, swanky, co-working space in Orchard called Spacemob and had so many lovely people join us! Here’s a quick summary of the talks and the video links for you to watch the recaps if you’ve missed them!
SG Geek Girls Meetup featuring Anthea Tang, GM, Rokkan Singapore
Speaker #1: Anthea Tang, GM, Rokkan Singapore
From a degree in industrial engineering, to working on optimizing public transport through software, and now being MD of a digital creative agency, Anthea shared about her journey with the many sides of technology and how a background in tech gave her a headstart in her career. Watch her full talk if you’re wondering how a background in tech can bring you places!
Speaker #2: Roopal Kondepudi
Roopal is (was) the youngest attendee of our first SG Geek Girls workshop back in 2012! 4 years on, she’s come a long way from our HTML and CSS workshop! Roopal talked about the apps she’s been working on (FloraSG) and her experience setting up a Geek Girls chapter in her school 😉 Super inspiring talk for all ages!
