The last day was a sad one because it marked the conclusion of a great experience. I wandered around the convention center, listening in on panels and contemplating all the things I had learned so far. Looking around me, I was truly glad to have had the opportunity of coming. It struck me how amazing the convention was–a gathering place for so many female computer scientists. I had learned so much about the computer science industry, its women leaders, and its progress in the past few years. Though I’m without a doubt still a beginner at computer science, the conference helped me affirm my dedication to the field.
