Jennifer Pahlka of Code for America speaking at the opening of Open Up

Founder and Executive Director of Code for America, Jennifer Pahlka is a rock star role model for innovators everywhere. She’s worn and continues to wear an impressive array of hats: recipient of government fellowships, entrepreneur, mother, tech enthusiast, US Deputy CTO in the White House, and more. We were lucky enough to have her stop by Adafruit and chat earlier this year! Pahlka is also the co-founder of the East Bay Mini Maker Faire, nearby to where she lives with her family in Oakland, California.

Adafruit 608-1

October 13th is Ada Lovelace Day! Today the world celebrates all of the accomplishments of women in science, art, design, technology, engineering, and math. Each year, Adafruit highlights a number of women who are pioneering their fields and inspiring women of all ages to make their voices heard. Today we will be sharing the stories of women that we think are modern day “Adas” alongside historical women that have made impacts in science and math.
