Website Move

We were using a free hosting option on WordPress for our website. We’re now moving all our site to here, to join our wider Girl Geek Dinner family. So make sure you update all your bookmarks to this site, all future events and details will be posted here 🙂

Sold out!

If you didn’t get your ticket yet, I’m afraid we’re now sold out. Keep an eye on the site as hopefully we’ll be back with some more dinners in the not-too-distant future!

If you’ve got your ticket already, well done! Remember, we kick off at 6:30pm this Friday in The Guest Room at The Southern Cross . See you then!

Speakers for GGD this Friday

We have two fantastic speakers lined up for this Friday:

Liz Henry, who is Kiwicon’s keynote speaker, is flying over from San Fransisco for the ‘con. Liz sports purple hair just to confuse evolutionary psychologists, tries to cause very specific trouble, and looks just swell in a tuxedo. She’s been writing on the internet since 1990, which is longer than some of you have been able to dress yourselves. Somehow, she still has hope for humanity. http://bookmaniac.org/

Our second speaker, Laura Bell, is also speaking at Kiwicon AND running the Surviving Kiwicon 101 briefing at 5pm on Friday at Little Beer Quarter which we’d definitely recommend. “A shy and retiring wall flower…” is one of the many phrases that have never been used to describe Laura. Since moving to NZ in 2011, she founded and runs in2securITy as well as working as a security consultant for Lateral Security. She knows what free time and hobbies are, she read about them in a book somewhere. It had a lot of pictures. http://www.in2security.org.nz/

Remember, we kick off at 6:30pm in The Guest Room at The Southern Cross

See you all on Friday!

Only 7 tickets left!

There’s not many tickets left, grab yours now. Read more about the event here. Important note: if you are having difficulty getting through the checkout it’s probably because Kiwicon’s checkout is in a special locked down mode in the final run up to the event. Drop Jen an email at jen [at] littlegreenpixel [dot] com and she can hook you up with the code you’ll need to get through.
