About this event

Programming is an extremely useful skill, but what if you don’t want to program full time? Hybrid tech roles combine technical skills with other in-demand skills such as teaching, writing, speaking, marketing, design, product strategy. Join us for a night of networking and a panel discussion with amazing women in different hybrid technical roles! Hear how having a hybrid set of skills can impact your career growth.

Are you interested in making a career switch but not sure which role in the tech industry is right for you? Are you in a non-technical role and curious if learning technical skills will be useful for your career? Or are in you a technical role and wondering if there is more to life than programming? Come learn if a hybrid technical role is right for you!
