The Inaugural Canberra Girl Geek Dinner is go!
Here's the news you've all been waiting for ... the inaugural Canberra Girl Geek Dinner has launched!

Date: Saturday, 21 February, 2009
Time: 7pm for a 7:30 start
Venue: Turkish Pide House, Jamison, in their private dining room.
RSVP: In the comments for this post - please remember to tell me your name and whether or not you will be coming with a guest

Because it's the first one we've had, it's an open mic night. No one has to stand up and talk, but it would be great to have a few of you tell us a little bit about yourselves and what you're in to. I'll also be giving you a little bit of a run down on the past, present and future of Girl Geek Dinners.

The night is intended to be relaxed and fun, with a technical focus. Anyone is welcome to attend, but guys need to make sure they have a girl to escort them.

We don't have any sponsors yet, so unfortunately you have to pay for this one. The banquets come to around $20-25 a head, so please bring enough cash on the night to cover the food and whatever drinks you might have.

See you all there!

    I am neither a girl or a geek (and no partner), can I come? Aaron

  14. Loquacity Says:

    Aaron, you just need to find a friendly girl geek who has an invitation going spare - every girl gets one invitation. You don't need to be in a relationship with them, you don't even need to arrive together. Just ask them to RSVP to me and mention your name (as well as their own, of course!).

    Hi there!

    I'm a long-time supporter of LinuxChix and would love to come to the dinner, but I need someone to sponsor me for that to happen. Are there any women who aren't bringing a partner to the dinner that would mind sponsoring me?

    Thanks in advance,
