About our Speakers

Christina Lynch / @xtinalynch

Christina currently works as a Technical Support Engineer in Microsoft Ireland. Christina is the organiser of Ireland Girl Geek Dinners. Girl Geek Dinners is an informal organization that promotes the presence of women in the Information technology industry.

Sorcha Bowler / @saoili

Sorcha wrote her first program in BASIC around the age of eight. Her father and all three of her older siblings are coders, so it made sense to her to do the same. She wrote a little Logo in school, but otherwise didn't get to do much more coding before she studied computer science in college, writing C++ and Java mostly. After college she got a QA job where she was told she'd be able to move into a programming job, but that never happened. She left after a year and spent nearly a decade in a service and support role. In her last couple of years there she was doing a job that involved suggesting improvements to customer code. Thus realising that she missed writing code, and on her excellent brother in law's advice, she taught herself Python. She fell in love with its simplicity and grace and lost the ability to write pysdo-code, as it now just comes out as Python when she tries. She got involved in Coding Grace, mentoring beginner programmers. After she interviewed in several different companies, learning something each time, the good people at Betbright gave her a chance and hired her. She's been working there as a developer for over three years now and is still delighted with herself.

Sarah Doran / @sarahd0ran

About Coding Grace

Coding Grace are a group of developers based in Ireland who love to code and do other geeky and not necessarily crafty activities. Some of us code full-time, or just for fun (or both). We have people who are part of other technical user groups such as Dublin ALT.NET, GameCraft, Python Ireland, Ruby Ireland and more…
We provide female-friendly workshops and events in an environment for developers and aspiring developers mentored by majority female instructors.
We aim to provide a support network for people from all backgrounds and hope our outreach will help bring those who are interested in code development together and learn from one another.
