The Enlightened Nerd: Women In Tech Holodeck Launch Party


The Enlightened Nerd is a column designed to enlighten the inner nerd in all of us through local whimsical and intellectual events, people, and places. Know a nerdy person, event, place, or thing in Vancouver? Send it in here or tweet it to @karolinakay_ (#theenlightenednerd)

Join Women in Tech World as they wave good-bye to their fearless Driving Women in Tech researchers on their cross-Canadian journey, on a night filled with unlimited drinks, food, and music!

Don’t miss out on Finger Food Studios’ world-class, real life holodeck – a staggering 25,000 square foot fun space located in Port Coquitlam. WinTech is providing a shuttle service from downtown Vancouver to this Virtual Reality hotspot for everyone’s utmost comfort.

Interactive demos of HoloLens and Sphero are all set to dazzle, and attendants will get to meet the trusty Driving WinTech RV before it hits the road.

Come drink, dance, and network with Vancouver’s women and men in tech and send our crew off in style!
