Conference for Girls
By ira on Mar 29, 2007
We in Solaris Cluster Engineering believe strongly in the "All work and no play (makes Jack a dull boy)" idiom. To that end, we try to maintain a healthy balance of work and extra-curricular activities in our professional lives ... remember the YouTube videos High Availability: Solaris Cluster and If Life Ran on a Solaris Cluster we blog'ed about a few weeks ago? I recently got an opportunity to do something really worthwhile on the extra-curricular front.
On March 3rd, I had the privilege of giving a keynote to middle and high school girls (and their parents) about pursuing careers in science and technology. This was at a National Science Foundation sponsored conference called "Technology Powered by Women", held in Kansas City. Needless to say, I felt a huge responsibility, considering the audience and the subject matter. I am happy to report that the keynote went very well, and I feel proud to have done this.
Details of this endeavor and the conference can be found at my blogsite. You will also find my keynote slides there.
See if you can spot Solaris Cluster in the slides anywhere!
