My Trip to Houston, Texas ~ Grace Hopper Conference

Here is a summary of my wonderfully exciting trip to Houston, Texas where I attended the 2015 Grace Hopper Conference! This conference is a celebration of women in computing. It was an amazing experience and I’m so thankful that I had the opportunity to attend. It was a very inspirational and motivating atmosphere and I got the chance to network with so many different companies. There were 12,000 attendees this year!

Make sure to check out my vlog from the trip!

We got to hear from some amazing speakers including, the CTO of the United States, the CEO of YouTube, the CEO of Code.org, and the COO of Facebook.

Instagram had this awesome backdrop at their booth at the career fair!!

On the last day we ended the Conference with a party at the Minute Maid park (where the Astros play baseball). Now if any of you are aware… I’m from Kansas City and I’m a HUGE Royals fan! A couple days before this the Royals beat the Astros in the ALCS. So of course I wore my Royals shirt to the party and had to get a photo with the Astros Mascot! 😛
