Vi ønsker oss mer mangfoldige teknologikonferanser!
Denne dagen blir det derfor arrangert en workshop for å oppmuntre flere til å sende inn sine foredrag til teknologikonferanser.
Siden målet er å øke mangfoldet, oppmuntrer vi folk fra grupper som ikke er så synlige i norsk teknologimiljø til å delta. Det kan for eksempel være ting som kjønn og kjønnsidentitet, legning, funksjonshemning eller sosioøkonomiske forhold. (Men dette vet du best selv - vi lager ingen uttømmende lister og regner med at alle som melder seg på er folk som vil ha nytte av workshopen).
Denne workshopen er rettet mot folk som ønsker å snakke på teknologikonferanser, og programmet passer best for deg som har kode som en del av faget ditt. (Vi oppmuntrer beslektede fagfelt til å ha tilsvarende workshops og deler gjerne materiellet).
Vi serverer lunsj (takket være Mobile Era konferanse for sponsing).
Vi har ett, kjønnsnøytralt toalett.
Det er et rom her hvor du kan amme.
Det er rimelig enkelt å komme inn i selve lokalet med rullestol, utfordringen er at man må i nabolokalet til Godt Brød for å finne et rullestolvennlig toalett. Ta gjerne kontakt hvis du trenger mer informasjon om dette.
We want to have more diverse technology conferences!
This is why we arranged a workshop to encourage more people to submit their presentations to technology conferences.
Since the goal is to increase diversity, we encourage people from groups that are not well represented in the Norwegian technology environment to participate. For example, there may be things like gender and gender identity, healing, disability or socio-economic conditions. (But you know this best yourself - we make no exhaustive lists and expect that all those who sign up are people who want to benefit from the workshop).
This workshop is aimed at people who want to speak at technology conferences, and the program is best suited for those who actually code. (We encourage related disciplines to have similar workshops and share the material).
We will serve lunch (thanks to Mobile Era conference for sponsoring)
We have one, sex-neutral toilet.
There is a room here where you can breastfeed.
It is reasonably easy to get into the venue with a wheelchair, but it could be challenging to find the nearby Godt Brød shop if you need a wheelchair-friendly toilet. Please contact us if you need more information about this.
