Ada Lovelace Day @ Variable Brussels: edit-a-thon

Ada Lovelace (1815-1852) is often referred to as the world’s first computer programmer. Initiated five years ago, the Ada Lovelace Day is about sharing stories and raising the achievements of women in STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Every year people organise their own events throughout the world to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day around the 15th of October.

First time in Belgium, a special event is proposed to gather participants from Brussels region to update/improve/create Wikipedia entries on Women in Computing, Hacking, Digital Culture & more !

Anyone is invited to attend (remote participants are also encouraged to join in). The editing workshop will be lead by Catherine Lenoble and a Wikipedia volunteer. No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary but attendees should bring their own laptops. Refreshments will be provided, a soup offered and there will be time for informal exchanges afterwards until 9.00pm.

Come & edit !

Please confirm your participation by e-mail : catherinelenoble@gmail.com
