Event description


Did you miss us? It’s been too long since we caught up IRL and we’re so excited to reconnect with you & make some new friends, starting at our end-of-year party in Melbourne!

We’re excited to bring back our community meet-up, where we showcase what the world of women & gender-diverse folks in STEM has to offer.

We are delighted to have a sit down with Melbourne’s very own Game dev/Tiktok sensation/mental health advocate Ella Lowgren to chat about her journey in the tech industry. 

Warming up the night with some sweet beats while you meet and mingle with other industry folks - it's an Algorave! Tash Atkins, who has been a much-loved Code Like a Girl community member, will be creating music through live code. After, we’ll be hosting a chat to hear all about how she got into this art form.
