The Grace Hopper Celebration Open Source Day Codeathon has been one of Women's P2P Network's most successful events, and this year was our best yet! (The codeathon brings technical women together to collaborate on projects for social good).
2013's roster of 23 brilliant women coders hailed from seven countries, nine universities, seven Silicon Valley companies including Amazon, Twitter, Box, and Yahoo. It also included three awesome high schoolers from the GenConnext program, and even a bona-fide rocket scientist! As a special treat, Grace Hopper/Facebook Scholarship winner Marguerite Saint-Louis, who has been part of our Haiti team from the beginning, joined us in person and guided the group in creating tools that would be appropriate for Haitian market women!
Greetings from Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing We are especially excited to have another member of our Haiti team with us this year - Grace Hopper Scholarship Award winner Marguerite Saint-louis! (That's two years in a row! Our Haiti team is AWESOME!)
