Thanks everyone at Google, we had a great time @ the IWD 2016 New York – the Fireside chat was great with the NYC CTO!

Google strives to cultivate a wholly inclusive workplace around the globe. A key component of that vision is empowering women to pursue their dreams and build tools that change the world. We believe that when organizations create the right environments, programs, and policies, women in technology can thrive.
That’s why, in conjunction with International Women’s Day, Google is partnering withWomen Techmakers to launch a series of global events geared toward increasing visibility, community, and resources for technical women in our industry. We’re excited to be hosting one of these local events right here in New York — and are excited you will be joining us!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
