A Recap of GGD PHL HighT[ech] #1

23 Feb

On February 18th, 2012, GGD PHL hosted our first High T[ech], a tasty gathering of food, speakers, and friendship. We got together to listen to three women speak about their research in the technical field in a casual intellectual environment.

The event was hosted at IndyHall, our venue sponsor, and attendees enjoyed catering from Miss Rachel’s Pantry. Chariot Solutions was our speaker sponsor. A good time was had by all, some even wishing it lasted longer. Enjoy some photos from the event, and we hope to see you next time!

For all photos from the event, see our Flickr or Facebook albums!
