A great time was had by all at our Long Island Women in Tech social meet up on August 9th. Some newbies and a group of existing members gathered on a beautiful night in August to do a bit of networking while enjoying appetizers and drinks outside at The Grill in Hauppauge, NY.

Here’s who we met:

— a new member, a Linux SysAdmin who is looking for opportunities in the Queens area

— a male ally who will host a LI Women in Tech event at Stony Brook University in October

— a member who just registered her own LLC to offer UX services to companies across the US

— a few members who joined us at our very first meet up back in early 2015

— another networking group who joined us at the end of our event with some interesting outfit choices (I could mean the guy in the zoot suit or me in my flip-flops!)

Members asked questions about how to find contract opportunities on Long Island and we shared what WorkMarket, a Long Island startup is doing to help you “unleash your inner entrepreneur”. Others asked how to land a work from home opportunity and we talked about what NYC based Power to Fly offers to women in our industry by focusing on our lifestyle needs first. We also shared the cool AI focused job matching platform from Workey that helps you find your next career step through understanding your past.

Thanks to everyone for joining us and we hope to see you all at our next event on September 13th @ Pa-Nash in Queens!
