Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing 2012

Jacqui and I attended the Grace Hopper Celebration in Baltimore, Maryland.  We had a great time.  They had a huge career fair in which many companies were there.  For example, Google, Amazon, National Labs, Lockheed Martin, NSA, NSF, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, Neustar, Palantir, and many more.  Also, many colleges attended.
The talk I enjoyed the most was given by Nora Denzel.  She was the keynote speaker on Thursday October 4.  She had many great points and was entertaining.
You can view the talk here:

Here are a few pictures we took while at the conference:

We were walking through the career fair and found the CRA-W booth.  We also noticed our picture on the poster!

This is the Baltimore Convention Center.  This is were Grace Hopper was held.
