A quick update
It's been 2 years since we launched this project at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, and we're still sending out decks and posters every month to educators, fellow-geeks, and anyone who wants to cherish and spread the history of women in computing. We are so grateful for your support and encouragement. Some highlights of the past few months:
- All the creators of this deck got to see each other at the 2016 Hopper Conference in Houston!
- (Jessica's boss won her election to the U.S. Senate!)
- We got to ship our first deck to Finland, which was pretty cool to explain (i.e. brag about) at the post office.
- This is a lowlight, but worth saying: Getting all of our materials back from Shipwire took 4 months and $1000+, but we have everything. As you might expect, we are now no longer recommending Shipwire as a vendor for Kickstarter projects on our How to Print Your Own Deck page.
- We're geared-up and ready to go for Black Friday -- so if you need a geeky stocking-stuffer, you can buy one of our decks or posters here.
In this tough time for our country, and with all the hard work we have ahead of us, we are grateful to know that there are thoughtful, engaged, nerdy women (and men who support women) out there doing the work. Thank you and keep strong.
