7 ways to get more Philly women in tech [Links]

"You want more women in tech events? You want more women speakers in conferences? You want more VCs and angels to invest in women? It’s time for YOU to take a stand."

Ladies in Tech, Let’s Step It Up [Yasmine Mustafa’s blog] “You want more women in tech events? You want more women speakers in conferences? You want more VCs and angels to invest in women? It’s time for YOU to take a stand.”

Modern-day maps are cool, too [Newsworks] “‘Maps are a universal language,’ said Sarah Cordivano, a project manager at the Philadelphia-based mapping firm Azavea. ‘You don’t have to understand a complicated software product or Excel to look at a map. It’s easy, it’s simple and it communicates very nicely.'”

From Open Data to Big Data [City of Philadelphia’s Managing Director’s Office] “As more of our data is released with the intent that outside developers will make use of it, an added – almost unanticipated – benefit of open data is that we are starting to see opportunities for new internal uses for our data. Our work to make data more usable benefits not only those outside, but data users in other departments and agencies of government. This helps underscore the connection between the work being done on open data and the promise of ‘big data’ to help enable better decisions and investments by government.”
