The event is free to attend, includes lots of great things for developers like lightning talks, labs, demo, workshops, code jam, DJ party, and admission to the Tuesday night concert at the MGM resort with Fall Out Boy and Elvis Costello.

Curtain Is Rising on a Tech Premiere With (as Usual) a Mostly Male Cast

“People who build technology should represent the people who use it,” reads one of the mottos of the National Center for Women and Information Technology

Why So Few Women in Silicon Valley?

Women own 40 percent of the private businesses in the United States, according to theCenter for Women’s Business Research. But they create only 8 percent of the venture-backed tech start-ups, according to Astia, a nonprofit group that advises female entrepreneurs.

That disparity reaches beyond entrepreneurs. Women account for just 6 percent of the chief executives of the top 100 tech companies, and 22 percent of the software engineers at tech companies over all, according to the National Center for Women and Information Technology. And among venture capitalists, the population of financiers who control the purse strings for a majority of tech start-ups, just 14 percent are women, the National Venture Capital Association says.

What will be HubSpot’s second act?

 No. 5: Raleigh-Cary, NC - America’s New Tech Hot Spots - Forbes um, what is Raleigh-Cary? i’ve heard of “Raleigh-Durham” because RDU gets confused all the time as a place even though it is an airport. But Cary isn’t part of the Triangle (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel-Hill) for crying out loud. RTP is definitely a thing (and is a big deal). Does this mean, based on tech jobs trends and Cary’s annex happy expansion plans we should start calling ourselves the Square? Discuss.
