Frontend Fem Fest

February 25, 2017 // Saturday, 9am-6pm // @Turbine Flats

A bunch of people getting up and sharing the tech-y things they LOVE, and helping us know what it might mean to get started (if we also think it's groovy) and what they've done or made with it! And us all listening and asking... and snacks, and free etc.

Bare Conductive Board

programable like arduino/raspberry pi
but easy like REAL PIE and we can make music with it

"We do, doodley do, doodley do, doodley do,
What we must, muddily must, muddily must, muddily must;
Muddily do, muddily do, muddily do, muddily do,
Until we bust, bodily bust, bodily bust, bodily bust."

Being a human is hard. Being a human in the tech industry is also hard. But wow! Guess what! Behind all the stuff, all the sometimes dumb stuff, we can use technology to MAKE THINGS. We get to MAKE COOL THINGS! (or dumb, weird, ugly, useless, etc.)

We think that Making things, doing things, That is The Thing To Do. And we want to share those things. Hold our Dumb Things Up in the Air! And learn or remember that we can make Dumb Things Too!

Frontend Fem Fest is for everyone. Not sure if that includes you? It does.

It's possible that FFF is an alley or avenue with things you could learn about that you don't care to learn about. However it is also possible that that alley has a cat and is Great.

hang out, help plan, share something, code a moving toad etc.

Do you want to do something with us?
