I am honored and humbled to be selected as a speaker for @SXSW 2014! in Austin, Texas. I will be holding a conversation about "Awakening the Mature Geek" and my organization Sisters Code and our unconventional work around bridging the technology gender gap! Excited to represent Detroit as we take this message to a global level! Hey, I was an aspiring mortician turned into a coder, Deputy CIO and Tech Exec...and you can do it too!
Austins street art scene is on the up and up and the past two years have seen big contributions by the likes of famous street artists like Shepard Fairey (OBEY) on the streets of Austin during the SXSW interactive festival. Great area for spotting street art an graffiti include South Congress Ave, South Lamar near Whole Foods, Ladybird Lake, North Lamar, and Baylor Street (HOPE Art Park).
