Every year, the dynamic organisers of the BCS Women group run the Lovelace Colloquium – a networking event for undergraduates and postgraduate women in computing. Back in 2009, when the colloquium was held in Leeds, I was lucky to be involved. Hannah Dee – the organiser of the event – was kind enough to let me stay at her home and it was wonderful to be involved in the day.

I remember telling Hannah that I was leaving the world of academia to start a company and her and Roger wished me luck. 3 years later, it was a bit of a special moment when we decided that the first event we’re going to sponsor as a company was a poster prize the Lovelace Colloquium. It’s my little way of saying thank you.

Congratulations to Sarah Murfett from Sheffield Hallam University for her poster.

Talking of which, I’ll be involved in the Women in Computing panel at the upcoming T100 festival celebrating the 100th year of birth of Alan Turing on 10th May. Please come and say hi if you’re heading along.

(Yes, I apologise for the awful attempt at a pun.)

Last Wednesday I joined Brian MacDonald, the infamous Luke Dicken, Jon from Lucky Frame on an IGDA panel about our learnings from GDC.

It was great to meet some new friends there – including Bez and local games studio Braindead Ape.

There’s a write up of the event over at the IGDA Scotland blog.
