December 24: Women in Tech Weekly Issue 38
Not a lot of Tuesdays left until New Year, but these amazing women are still moving ahead at full speed! Their drive and achievements are truly awe-inspiring, so what better way to spend the holidays than by getting your weekly dose of inspiration right here with our Women in Tech Weekly!
Have a very merry Christmas and I hope to see you in the next one (make sure to check out the submission form below) ?
Featured Woman ??
Hollie and Science Geekette
Hollie is awesome, this girl has a wonderful sense of humour and takes you on a really fun science journey. And she is working on a field of science that’s less widely known – lasers! So if you’ve been curious to see what other STEM fields or professions there are, you need to follow this beautiful human!
Stefanie celebrated her B-day on 12/14!
In her own words:
“On my birthday 12/14, I celebrated another year being loved, learning, and fostering loving animals.”

Marie officially graduated as a Software Engineer!
Congratulations, Marie!! I loved reading your post am so impressed by all of the personal and professional growth you’ve had in the last 4 years! You are an absolute badass and we are all so proud of you and excited to see what’s next for you!
Officially graduating from software engineering in two days 😳👩🎓 I loved being an undergrad at @etsmtl more than I ever thought possible. ⠀ ⠀ During my 4 years at #etsmtl, my personality completely changed. ⠀ ⠀ University changed me so much, in ways I probably don’t realize yet. ⠀ ⠀ Even if I'm still shy at times, I don't hesitate to go after what I want. 🙋♀️⠀ ⠀ I constantly go out of my comfort zone every time I can.⠀ ⠀ I talked in front of crowds and participated in countless panels. ⠀ ⠀ In a room full of strangers, I don't stay alone in a corner. I go to people and introduce myself. ⠀ ⠀ I go to events alone because nothing will stop me from doing what I want 🙊⠀ ⠀ I learned time management and priorities. An essential skill at uni when juggling a student club, a successful blog/IG/YouTube channel, social life, and studies. ⠀ ⠀ I discovered how hard I can work to reach my goals.⠀ ⠀ I’m proud of me! 😁❤️

Sam passed her PhD qualifying exams!
Both, written and oral!!
Congratulations, Sam, this is so exciting and we are all very proud of you! I hope you celebrated really well and are excited for the research stage – we are certainly excited for all of the updates!
What equations/theory do you use on a regular basis? If I’m working with waves (because the wind and waves are related over the ocean), I’m most likely working with wave equations _ LINEAR OCEAN WAVE THEORY: how do waves move across the sea surface? _ UNKNOWNS _ 1. Velocity field, u,v, w 2. Free surface elevation (η) 3. Pressure field _ EQUATIONS _ 1. Continuity of mass: Laplace’s differential equation in terms of velocity potential (flow): solving gives us the surface height, velocity potential, velocity and dispersion relation and must satisfy ALL boundary conditions 2. Bernoulli’s equation (reduction in pressure usually due to increase in fluid speed) _ BOUNDARY CONDITIONS _ 1. Bottom boundary condition: no flow through an impervious body 2. Dynamic free surface condition: PRESSURE at interface, found from Bernoulli’s equation 3. Kinematic free surface condition: MOTION the velocity of a particle follows the velocity of the surface 4. Lateral boundary conditions: determined situationally based on boundary. If none, periodic boundary condition invoked, as the wave propagates with constant form in x direction θ= ωt -kx

Everything you wanted to know about being a new-grad Program Manager – created and shared by Dasani
“Program Management is a highly coveted and elusive role in the tech industry. In this article, I describe what the role is, how you can be a PM and answer a lot of questions I get asked regularly about my job.”
“I have always found Udacity courses to be done to a very high standard. The videos are made well and they throw in plenty of examples for you to practice what you are learning. There are plenty of free courses that help you learn the basics of programming, big data tools like Spark, and even statistics.
You can build up a high-quality foundation of understanding in different programming topics for free! For example, the one in the link goes to full-stack foundations which teaches you how to make a web app.”
Disrupting Holiday Shopping with Tech – created and shared by me 🙂
Holiday shopping is wonderful and daunting at the same time: you get to surprise your loved ones with some thoughtful gifts, but it can also become a nightmare if you don’t know their size or favourite colour. Learn how this company is disrupting that process!
