I had the great honor to be invited to speak at the DigiGirlz Day Camp in Redmond on the Microsoft Campus. The topic was, of course, drones, and I split the talk with an extremely smart and dedicated woman and current lead of the Microsoft Drones Garage, Guada Casuso.
We discussed the current state of the drone industry, and basics like different types of drones and different uses for drones. I went a little deeper into the technical side of FPV racing drones, and we of course discussed diversity in drones.
All in all we had a great time. There were about 100 girls there, and we know we stoked the fire of interest in at least a few of them. It’s very inspiring to be around so many young women facing a future in tech, and it was an honor being asked to speak.
Here are a few photos from the event, and below is a quick video of my portion of the talk.
