Carole Logan

I am a web developer, team lead and community meetup organiser.

After completing a computing science degree I worked as a Java developer in finance industry for 2 years before switching tech stack and industry to .Net development and a Digital Agency.

In the 6 years since then I have become a senior developer and for the last 18 months, a development team lead. As a team lead, I am involved from project discovery & requirements gathering through to launching the project aswell as managing a team of developers.

Since attending university I became very aware of being the only woman in many classrooms, meetings, hackathons and meetups. Having attended women in tech events, I realised how important community is for women in male dominated industries and I decided to help build a community. For 3 years I have been chapter lead for Ladies of Code Glasgow, where we organise monthly meetups for women working in coding careers or looking to join the industry. One of the things I am most proud of is being able to help women learn new skills, boost their confidence & gain experience in public speaking.

As an organiser of several development communities & speaking at conferences, I am very passionate about increasing the presence of women in these spaces. We need to be not only being part of the conversations, but leading them. Seeing role models speaking at conferences or running workshops shows women it's possible but also changes the stereotype for everyone else.

I am a development team leader at a digital agency (Equator) in Glasgow. As well as my day job as a team leader I am a community meetup organiser with an interest in making the tech industry a more inclusive, welcoming place for everyone.

After studying computing science at the University of Glasgow, I graduated in 2011 starting a job in Java web development. After 2 years, I decided to join a digital agency, where I have now worked for over 5 years. I have switched tech stacks to C# .Net development, regularly building e-commerce booking systems. I have a keen interest in IOT, where we can solve real life problems using technology in the "real world".

In recent years I have become involved in tech communities both locally in Glasgow and globally in open source. I have spoken at conferences in Denmark and Germany as well as at home in Scotland. I am particularly proud to be chapter lead of Ladies of Code Glasgow for the last 2 years where we have seen our network grow to almost 500 members and had many of our community members give their first tech talks. I also co-organised DDD Scotland 2018 - a free community event for > 200 developers.

I strongly believe in “if you can see it you can be it”, encouraging women in tech to allow future generations to see people like them leading teams, speaking at conferences and being an accepted part of the tech industry.
