A ship in port is safe; but that is not what ships are built for. Sail out to sea and do new things. - Grace Hopper

This year Grace Hopper was in Baltimore Maryland!

We had about 30 girls from UCSD attend this year, which put us in the top 10 schools for attendance!

This year they broke up the dancing in two nights! The first night was a dance party at the convention center where Marjori and I got to meet Alan Eustace!

And the second night was at the Science Center in Baltimore and was hosted by Microsoft, Google and RSA!

Not only did we get to dance, but we got to explore the science center,

Take funny pictures,

And eat delicious cupcakes!!

But Grace Hopper isn't JUST about the parties and yummy desserts, it's mostly about the thousands of inspirational women who get together every year to celebrate being technical women!

This year at Grace Hopper I attended sessions, networked with so many people and hopefully inspired some as well. Every year you learn something new and I hope next year we can get even more UCSD women to attend and grow our community in ways we could have never imagined!
