Auckland Girl Geek Dinner #4


When: Wednesday 28th May 2008 @ 6pm
Where: Microsoft House, Level 5, 22 Viaduct Harbour Ave, Auckland Central
Cost: $30 from

The theme for this event will be hardware development, including designing modern home entertainment systems (codecs/coding/firmware) and building homemade game console interfaces. These speakers know which end of a soldering iron to hold. J

We have Cherie Carbines and Steven Ellis from OpenMedia who will be demonstrating MediaCentres and explaining the technical nitty gritty that goes into building them, plus we have a young lady called Tamara Olliver as a speaker. When Tamara was 15 she rebuilt the playstation dance mat to make it more robust then open sourced the code and hardware designs.

There will be a quiz and maybe some other fun things to get everyone talking and mingling.

Tickets are available from the website: and I will need to limit them to 50 because of the venue size, so first come, first served. Light dinner and drinks are included in the ticket price.

Men are welcome to attend but must come as the guest of an attending woman.
