Programming and the Ethical Life
Long before the world gave us Facebook and Twitter, Ellen Ullman was writing about how the process of making software changes people—and about how software changes us, too. Each of her books has been an all-too-rare opportunity to discuss how technology is changing the paths of culture. If you’re someone who works in software and possess ethical curiosity, if you believe that your work matters beyond simply the latest status updates and release notes, and if you seek an ethical life as a programmer, you should attend this event.See More ➔

We host welcoming and inclusive events
That means serving a variety of tasty drinks (not just alcohol!), choosing food that satisfies common dietary restrictions, and creating a safe space for everyone. Our event code of conduct is easy to read, and acts as the standard that we hold ourselves and our guests to.

Our sessions tend to cover topics around one of our three disciplines: product design, engineering, or product management. We’ve developed a relaxed interview style that puts the work on us instead of the guest. It keeps the evening focused and fun for everyone.
We make our space available to other tech organizations who are doing stuff we support. We’ve hosted Black Girls Code, Girl Develop It, and others. We’d love to consider hosting your organization too. Let us know if we can help.
