#WhyWeLovePhilly – PANMA Event

Updated 10/30/2011 – The video of the event has been embedded below. I start at the 1:09:05 mark.

I’m about to head out the door to speak at PANMA’s “WhyWe LovePhilly – The Awesome Philly Tech Scene” event. The idea is to showcase the diverse, tech community in Philadelphia by having various organizers come in and speak about the groups they started or participate in.

As most of you know, I’m fairly active in Philly’s tech scene and I’ve spearheaded a few projects. They include:

  1. GirlDevelopIt Philly
  2. TechGirlz
    • Goal: To encourage middle school girls to get into technology-related fields
    • Next event: Programming with Kodu on November 19th
    • Sign up link or contact info[at]techgirlz[dot]com
  3. Philly Startup Leaders Poker Club
  4. Philly Startup Leaders Book Club

I just started a LearnRuby 101 group as well and I’ll post more information on that once we get off the ground.

See you tonight!
