Female Engineers at Hack Reactor Land Coveted Scholarships
Two female engineers at Hack Reactor recently received recognition from the programming and tech community for outstanding work in their field. Selby Walker, a web developer at Versal (an education platform) and Bianca Gandolfo of Visual Stager (software that allows you to place furniture in photos of vacant rooms) were both awarded scholarships from FutureStack and REST Fest 2013, respectively.
The FutureStack.io event happened October 24-25 in San Francisco. FutureStack scholarship winners have the opportunity to learn about the future of application technology, software development and developer culture. At the same time, these winners are networking with New Relic partners, sponsors, mentors, hiring managers and those who hold industry influence.
"The conference will be an inspirational playground for our scholarship recipients to discuss, debate and define how modern software is evolving today and in the years to come," wrote the New Relic blog.
Winners of the FullStack scholarship receive:
- Full access to attend the two-day FutureStack conference
- Three-night stay at the Grand Hyatt San Francisco
- Travel to and from San Francisco (up to $600 max)
- A $200 food and general expenses stipend upon arrival
- Inclusion for you and your organization/company in a New Relic press release and blog post
REST Fest 2013
The RESTFest 2013 program announced their first ever "Women in Tech" scholarship and nominated three winners who went on to speak at their conference in North Carolina. Hack Reactor was thrilled when we heard they selected our very own alumna and Hacker in Residence, Bianca Gandolfo.
