Intelliware’s relationship with Women Who Code started in 2017, when we became the first Toronto company to participate in their Network Sponsorship program. As our partnership continues to grow, it is with great pleasure we announce our third annual Women Who Code Meetup to be held on Tuesday, October 8th at Intelliware’s DevSpace, at 200 Adelaide Street West in downtown Toronto. For the third year in a row we will be celebrating Ada Lovelace Day alongside the Women Who Code Toronto Chapter.
