Yahoo!7 hosted a Girl Geek dinner in their Sydney, Australia office last week. The audience was a rich mix of people, from tech writers and marketers to developers, sys admins, and researchers. We saw girl geeks from companies like Atlassian, Thoughtworks, and Google, and from groups like Linuxchix. We were genuinely thrilled to have a chance to hobnob with other female geeks.

Sara Falamaki spoke about happy code for happy programmers. Everyone seemed uber appreciative of Saras insight. Pratibha and I spoke on YUI, Open ID, Yahoo APIs, and all that Yahoo! has to offer to the developer community.

The dinner was a complete success and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. We hope to see other Yahoo! offices sponsoring Geek Girl dinners in the future.
