Thoughtworks Uganda hosts the first edition of Girl Geek Dinners
On the 7th February 2014 Thoughtworks Uganda hosted the first edition of the Girl Geek Dinners at the Piato Restaurant in Kampala, Uganda. Afchix Uganda participated together with Women in Technology Uganda and Girl Geek Kampala.
Girl Geek Dinners is an informal organization that promotes women in the Information technology industry. It has 64 established chapters in 23 countries. Sarah Lamb founded it in London, United Kingdom in August 2005. She was tired of being the only woman at technical events. The main goal of Girl Geek Dinners is to provide a safe environment for women who want to meet other amazing women with the same passion about technology.
