On Thursday 22nd November in Parnell, Girl Geek Dinners are holding their inaugural event and it would be great to make this first event a huge success.  There’s only a week to go and we still have quite a few tickets available so it would help if you could please forward this email to any people or companies you think may be interested.   

Tickets can be booked online at EventBrite: – there are no door sales as I need to know numbers to ensure the right amount of food is prepared.

The tickets are $30 each and for this you receive the following:

  • Food
  • $6 bar voucher to cover the cost of your first drink
  • Presentation about Silverlight by Nigel Parker from Microsoft and Nas Khan from Intergen (more information below)
  • Q & A session after the presentation
  • Network with other techy women


Join Nas and Nigel as they present an insight into the new Microsoft Silverlight platform.


Learn how to deliver richer online experiences for your users by adding video, multimedia and vector graphics to traditional web pages. See demos of what has been created here and abroad using this exciting new technology. This session will also touch on the current design process and demonstrate the workflow which new tools Expression Blend and Visual Studio 2008 offers designers and developers when building Silverlight solutions.
