If you follow the tech startup world at all you’ll no doubt have heard two terms used with increasing frequency in in recent years – Machine Learning and Human-Centered Design. If you’ve been intrigued but perhaps a bit intimidated about learning more about either or both of these, you need to check out two events in the coming weeks.

Each time a Startup Weekend event is organized here in Sacramenot, the organizing team also organizes workshops ahead of the actual weekend event. These events are absolutely free and are highly relevant to entrepreneurs. The organizing team for the upcoming Women’s Edition Startup Weekend team has lined up a series of fantastic events for you to check out. And, though these workshops are part of the Women in Tech series, men are encouraged to attend!
