    How To Stay Focused While Being A Visible, Active Member Of The Female Tech Community

    There are always interesting engineering events on the weekends in Silicon Valley, such as hackathons.

    By Julia Grace (Co-Founder & CTO, WeddingLovely)

    As the CTO of a small startup, my days are almost always spent head down, focused on our business and building our technical infrastructure. I’m writing code, fixing bugs, building features, thinking about what’s next on our product roadmap and figuring out how we’ll get there.

    The adage is that most startups fail because they lose focus. The problem is that it can be difficult to focus when you also have to ensure that potential investors, future employees, and the tech community know that you exist.

    Calling Global Women Hackers, Hear Her Hack

    Join the LinkedIn DeveloperHer hackday in Mountain View, California -or- Delhi, India on June 30!

    By Rashmi Sinha (Co-Founder & CEO, SlideShare)

    There is no better way than a hackday to highlight and celebrate women who are hackers and creators, and to encourage women who are watching from the sidelines to join in.

    A few weeks ago, we announced LinkedIn’s first global women’s hackday in Mountain View from June 30th to July 1st, a little over a week from now. I am excited to announce that by popular demand, we have now added in a second venue. There will be a parallel DevelopHer hackday in Delhi, India, over the same weekend.

    March 8 may be International Women’s Day but we are celebrating women all week, year long!

    By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)

    This week, we highly respect Sara Blakely for joining Forbes’ World Billionaire’s list thanks to her company Spanx. The 41 year old is the youngest person on the list – and worth ten figures without the aid of a husband or an inheritance, and she still owns 100% of the company she founded in 2000.
