Girl Geek Coffees Super October Event @ ACS! Bring it ON! ;)
Dear Girl and Guy Geeks;
We have recently had some major changes to our October Meetup and we would like to tell you about them.
– Our October Event will not be a fundraiser as the Girl Geek team have managed to gain enough sponsorship to cover the entire event.
This means all students will get FREE TICKETS to attend the event. Any students who have already paid for a ticket will be refunded on the night.
It’s time for NSW Girl Geeks Coffees’ Super October meetup! Super woohoo! 🙂
We have heaps of activities lined up ranging from a silent auction to a debate. And, you have a wonderful opportunity to meet representatives from Halfbrick, Avanade, Microsoft, ThoughtWorks, Commonwealth Bank, Reading Room, NICTA, the Australian Computer Society (ACS), and, Miriam Hochwald – Director of Girl Geek Coffees.
SO, HURRY, and grab your ticket from >> https://ggc-oct-2013.eventbrite.com/, ASAP!
When: Thursday, 24 October, 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM EST
Where: Auditorium Room, Australian Computer Society, 11/50 Carrington St, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
