Womxn Level Up

Womxn Level Up is a meetup aimed at empowering software engineers and web developers who identify as female, non-binary, and/or are from underrepresented backgrounds, through education, networking, and mentorship. While there is a plethora of amazing tech meetups available, we noticed a need for something geared towards people who identify as mid-level or have some experience already working as a programmer.

Maybe you graduated from a bootcamp a few years ago and have already had a couple jobs. Maybe you’ve been junior awhile and want to be mid-level. Maybe you’re mid-level and want to be senior. Maybe you want to be the next team lead. We want to help you get there! We intend to build out the technical component of our meetup to really challenge you and level up your skills.

close Don't Get Lost in the Trees: An Intro to Cypress

Within a few short years, Cypress has emerged as a popular framework for end-to-end testing. Marked by a browser-based runner, asynchronous behavior, and readability, it offers a robust way to automate, particularly for front-end components. This talk will walk us through some common use cases, as well as some limitations (such as Electron vs. Chrome capabilities). It'll also dig into how Quality Assurance engineers might utilize the library differently from full-stack developers. Lastly, we'll look at Cypress' compatibility with non-JavaScript frameworks like Rails.

There's an undeniable wage gap for womxn and bipoc. Today, we're experiencing not just this existing wage gap but an even greater raise gap in fundraising for womxn and bipoc entrepreneurs and business owners. Through data storytelling, we'll explore the intricacies of these inequalities, and how we, as technologists, can support one another to create an inclusive society by design, while summarizing the fundamentals concepts of data visualization.
