Ok, something I have to say: I had an absolute freaking BLAST at the #gracehoppercelebration on Friday night. I had been asked to DJ with my friend Bob for this special event and was pretty nervous! I've never been in front of a crowd of so many positive, influential women in tech. Few know, but when I'm not the DJ with the fiyah, I'm a sys admin (gasp!) It is not an easy feat to be a woman in technology and have to face the constant struggle of sexism and gender bias in computing every day. But I'm incredibly grateful that I could bring my little world of music and tech combined to celebrate such empowering women from all over the world. Thank you so much, friends. I cannot wait to see how you change the world. #ghc2017 #gracehopper2017 #orlando #womenintech #womencoders #womenwhohack #femaleprogrammer #femaledj #girldj #violinist #violin #femalepower #thefutureisfemale #occc #afterparty #violinanddj #djemv @stringinghimalong 📷 @becvaughan

I DJ too, and there aren’t many women in the scene. It’s always wonderful to see another woman behind the decks. 😊 #slay #GHC17
