I recently worked with Dudette, a ladies’ DIY group here in Vancouver and with Liane Morisette of Cold Gold Contact Microphones to set up the first-ever Ladies’ Hacking Night at the Vancouver Hack Space. Liane showed us all how to make fuzz bass pedals, which proved to be a great intro to soldering for many. The night was a bit of an experiment, but all of us were pleasantly surprised by the turn-out and overall interest in the event. It seems that more women everywhere are getting into electronics, and that women hack-a-thons are popping up. This is definitely something that we will be doing again soon at VHS.
