Girl Geek Dinner Brisbane - Dinner 5

Girl Geek Guitar Hero Gaming Night

This month, Micrsoft have kindly lent us their office so we're going to something a little different: a night of games! There will be a few games and consoles to choose from.  Why not:

  • Sharpen up your guitar, drum and singing skills and have a go at Rock Band and or Guitar Hero on Xbox 360
  • Play some tennis or do some yoga on the Nintendo Wii
  • Or bring along your favourite game to share with others.

We’re fortunate to have Tracy Whitelaw as our guest speaker who will talk about women in gaming. tracywhitelaw Tracy Whitelaw is a self-confessed geek and gadget girl who creates robot brains in her position as the Chief Knowledge Engineer at artificial intelligence company 'MyCyberTwin'. Based on the Gold Coast, Tracy works in an environment that delivers fully customised personalities and characters to a number of companies and businesses including NASA, AMP, NAB, PBL Media and others.

Holding a BSc(Hons) degree in Behavioural Science, Tracy has long had an interest in the social construction of identity in popular media forms. She specializes in studying trends in society, how individuals act within a social milieu, and in helping MyCyberTwin technology be rich in response to these patterns. She has been involved in online technology for a number of years.

Her particular areas of specialisation are online worlds, gaming, character creation and formation of identity in popular culture.  With a passion for emerging technology and how it is used, Tracy enjoys the challenges of creating engaging characters who keep users entertained and informed. She combines this with her interest in video-games and gaming culture, working voluntarily as the PA for a number of female based gaming websites. She writes freelance for a number of online and print sources, primarily about her passions for gaming, culture and geekiness.

Who is invited?

If you are a geek and a girl or know of one who is willing to escort you then you are welcome and encouraged to come along. There is a technical focus with the intention of having fun and connecting with other women in IT.
