TechGig Geek Goddess, the women-only tech extravaganza, enters its second edition this year.

#TG3 takes the philosophy of gender diversity and inclusion a notch higher.

Speaking about the need for one such coding contest, Nilanjan Roy, Head of Strategy at Times Business Solutions, says, “While female coders in India constitute around 20% of the workforce, the percentage of women coders visiting TechGig is over 40% - clearly showing that the Era of Geek Goddess upon us."

Partnering companies include Sapient, Schneider Electric, Radisson Blu Atria Bengaluru, CDK Global, Genpact and more.

The event not only involves women coders but also testers and UI/UX experts. Nilanjan Roy elaborates, “While back-end coding provides for a strong and stable product, it is front-end coding where the biggest innovations and real brand differentiation is being witnessed. We have broadened the horizon of TG3 and introduced 'Theme Rounds' in UI/UX, QA and Testing, to cover them as integral parts of the tech eco-system.”

The ladies also get to learn from the experiences of top leaders. With webinars, panel discussions and Q&A sessions, top women leaders share their diversity experiences and tech knowledge with the participants.

Participants of TechGig Geek Goddess can win prizes worth Rs 5,00,000, apart from gift vouchers and even a smartphone. Top IT recruiters have a close eye on the contest for any hirings.

TechGig Geek Goddess 2017 starts January 15, 2017.
