I am a senior developer at Scott Logic, working primarily with Java. I'm currently fascinated by data science and machine learning

If I said the words "a tech conference for women" - what would you imagine? Would it be the attendees sitting in circles, holding hands and admiring each other's beads? Do you picture 'sisters' singing kumbaya and plotting the downfall of the patriarchy? Would you picture sessions such as "how to code for fluffy-wuffy knitting sites?" Would you wonder if it was full of hardcode coding and hacking sessions to get women further up the knowledge ladder? Some of the Scott Logic tech staff went to a technical conference for women. This is what it was like.
This blog describes a one day event in London where leading tech companies were discussing tools they use to make their development and operations scale and be more efficient.
