The Ada Lovelace Celebration is a two-day event in Uppsala, aiming to bring together tech-interested people and companies from the area. With a mixture of inspirational, career and tech talks we hope to provide a platform for participants to network, learn and support the cause of technology and gender equality. The talks will take place on November 17, and all participants will have the chance to participate in a programming workshop on November 18.

The registration is free, food and drinks are provided, so sign up today! We open up 40 tickets now (first come first serve!), and will reserve 20 others to accept registrants from the waiting list to make sure to have a diverse audience. So make sure to sign up for the waiting list, too!

We will have a few scholarships (worth 400 SEK, more if available) to support your travel expenses, if you are traveling from outside of Uppsala. Let us know whether you need one during registration!
