    Nashville Girl Geek Dinner #23: Sponsored By Eventbrite

    Eventbrite

    Eventbrite is excited to partner with Nashville Girl Geek Dinner for the 3rd year in a row! This year, we're doing something a little different. Join the leading ladies of Eventbrite's Nashville Engineering team to hear about their journeys in technology, paths to Eventbrite, and the challenges, opportunities and lessons learned along the way.

    We want this evening to be interactive, so come prepared to jump into the conversation with the team as we dive into what it means to follow your own journey to a career in technology.

    April Meeting: Git And GitHub Interactive Lab

    Eventbrite

    This Monday’s Topic


    We will look at the basics of the Git workflow and working collaboratively with distributed version control on GitHub. This will be a beginner friendly interactive and hands-on workshop.

    If you do not have access to a laptop, that is totally fine - we can pair up with a neighbor, or follow along with the presentation.


    If you want to follow along on a laptop, before the meeting, it would be helpful if you:

    1. Download a free text editor. Some text editor options are AtomSublimeText, or Webstorm. Atom is free. SublimeText and Webstorm offer free trials. All three run on Windows and Mac.

    2. Create a free GitHub account at: https://github.com/join 

    3. Install git. Here are instructions: https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Getting-Started-Installing-Git

    Why

    This group is hosted by women programmers with the goal to build a welcoming environment to learn and to grow diversity in the programming field. 


    We have three main goals:  


    1. Connect women programmers and supporters so that we can have friends with whom to attend other programming events in town. 


    2. Facilitate discovery and learning of new tech subjects from a speaker who has spent time studying, compiling, and translating information so a beginner to that topic can understand. 


    3. Provide an encouraging space where people can gain speaking experience, and hopefully go on to speak at local user groups, conferences, etc… thus increasing minority visibility and inspiring other underrepresented people in tech. 


    Who

    We embrace the Lambda Jam Conference Diversity Policy and welcome people of any gender identity or expression, race, ethnicity, size, nationality, sexual orientation, ability level, neurotype, religion, elder status, family structure, culture, subculture, political opinion, identity, and self-identification. 


    What to Bring  

    - A laptop, tablet, smartphone, or pen/paper if you would like. None of these are required though.

     - Questions on any tech topics or careers in tech. 

    - Any guests who are also interested in learning to code and/or increasing diverse participation in tech.  

    - Our meeting overlaps with dinner. Feel free to bring a packed meal or pick up something on the way there. 


    What to Expect  

    - Free to attend. 

    - Free internet. 

    - Our group has adopted the Hacker School Social Rules. We seek to provide an environment of encouragement, openness, and support so all who attend can feel comfortable, welcome, and free to ask questions and grow.

    PARKING: 
    (Listed starting with cheapest options) 

    ---------------------------------------------


    Bike Parking 

    Free bike parking is available in front of Cummins Station. Don't forget your bike lock and reflectors for riding home at night!  

    Less Than $1 or Free Street Parking

    All of the parallel parking spaces along the front of Cummins Station (and the nearby streets) are free after 6pm. A few of these spots are reserved for valet in the evenings, so if you see a valet sign, park elsewhere.

    If you arrive earlier than 6pm, put in just enough exact change to cover you until the spots turn free at 6PM.

    Paid Lot Parking - Further, But Less Expensive 

    The Frist parking lot, across the street from Cummins Station, is the cheapest paid parking option.

    Rates: $1.50 first 1/2 hour; $6 first hour; $3 each additional hour; $24 daily max; Special events pricing as posted.

    Note: this parking lot is on the north side of Cummins Station, and Eventbrite is on the south side. However, you can enter Cummins Station from the North and walk through the inside of the building to get to the Eventbrite office.

    More info on The First parking lot: http://www.parkitdowntown.com/nashville/frist-lot-ii

    Paid Lot Parking - Closer, But More Expensive 


    Two paid parking lots are available directly across from Cummins Station. Last time we inquired, the rates was $6/hour after 5PM, with a maximum evening cost of $12, unless there is a special event pricing in effect.

    If you eat in a restaurant in Cummins Station, you can get your parking validated, which reduces the cost to free in many cases.
