ORLANDO – Over 18,000 women in technology and more than 200 companies were present at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from October 3rd to October 6th.

Over a span of four days, women from all around the nation united with technology ranging from robotics to animations. During Grace Hopper, our members listened and learned from keynote speakers, attended technical and professional workshops, traversed through the career fair, and interviewed with companies. Hitarthi Shah, a second-year international student from India majoring in Computer Science was inspired by the conference. "I didn't want to leave because I felt energetic and passionate among all of the tech women at Grace Hopper," expressed by Shah.

Many thanks to our sponsors – the USF College of Engineering, USF Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) department, and CAE – for providing a life-changing opportunity to members in the USF Women in Computer Science and Engineering (WISCE) chapter.
