A few weeks ago I was invited to give a talk in our small community in Bishkek. Finally found some time to write a note about it.
The community in Bishkek is a local part of the global community Women Tech Makers, which I believe inspires girls to choose working in IT sphere. That is pretty cool, considering the fact that most of the girls, especially in Kyrgyzstan do not associate their lives with IT. They simply don’t know what actually they could do in IT if not programming.
Alice, who was one of the organizers of the event, and at the same time a project manager in Mad Devs, asked me to tell about Becoming the Project Manager, and give practical advices to the participants. Hope I managed to be useful for them. For those who interested, the slides are at the end of the post.

If you want to make things worse on your project, there are 10 tips for ruining the project and making it a real hell for your team.
The other topics were by:
Svetlana Khan — developer/Scrum master in TimelySoft LLC. Svetlana talked about Scrum methodology and its integration to the process.
Maria Tsvetkova — frontend developer from IT-Attractor Plus. Her speech was about how to become a developer.
Developer. Education. Experience.
This post is dedicated to all, who want to learn how to program. Who does not know where to gain experience at the start, what to study and where to go.
Altynay Nurkamilova — php developer/freelancer, who talked about pros and cons of remote work and how to search for new projects.
All these girls are very successful in what they are doing.
Though the event did not last long it went very well.
We in Mad Devs are happy to participate in this kind of events and be the part of the Women Tech Makers community.
Good luck and wish to have more events of this kind in Kyrgyzstan!
