Organised by Vickie Allen, who has been instrumental in getting both Ipswich and Norwich on the the East Anglian Tech Nation map, she has now turned her sights on raising the profile of women in the East Anglian technology sector. The awards are aimed at recognising women who already work in technology and to hopefully inspire others follow in their footsteps.
Vickie has been keen to build an East Anglian network through the SyncDevelopHER meetups that are open to everyone, providing the opportunity to learn, ask questions and network with other technology enthusiasts and industry experts. For teenagers with a software development interest, there is also a Saturday morning Code Club that will be starting again in the autumn.
Mark Thomas, MD of Coderus said,”We are keen to see the momentum behind Tech Nation continue and by sponsoring the DevelopHER awards, it’s created an opportunity to do this as well a recognising the contributions from women in technology businesses, especially in our case, software development”.
At Coderus we are regularly looking for talented software developers, testers, or a combination of both to join our friendly and expanding team. Interested in joining us? To learn more about our available vacancies, click here.
