Recently, I attended the first, of hopefully many, Girl Geek (York) Dinners held at Grays Court, York. There was a full house of people from a range of backgrounds and, after an excellent supper and lots of time to network, we were treated to two inspiring presentations.

The first was from Helen Harrop of Sero (and a million other enterprises, as anyone who follows her of Twitter will tell you) entitled How I Learnt to Love Numbers. Helen took us through her early influences and experiences with numbers and how she caught the computing bug. Helen expertly weaves her affinity for logic with her passion for art, probably because she instinctively sees the overlap between them. You can find evidence of Helen’s artistry including her doodles (the word just doesn’t do them justice) on Flickr.

The second presentation was from Mary Vincent of Green Star Solution. We were given a whirlwind tour of her many business interests, with a discussion on a host of green ICT issues including thin clients, cloud computing (potentially greener?) and data centre design.

The tag for this meeting was #GirlGeekY so it’s worth looking for other blog posts and Tweets about this event.
