Google Zurich's Retreat

I had the opportunity to go for a 3 days retreat, from 28th till 30th of June 2010, in Google Zurich, Switzerland, as stated in this post (Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship EMEA 2010). It was a wonderful experience. The retreat was really organized in a fascinating way! We had some technical lectures, some career panels, some workshops and talks, a Google offices tour, some free time to visit the city itself, tasty food inside and outside the office, a stay in a fancy hotel and we also had to present one of our projects in a poster show. We were a big group and being part of this big network of students studying the same field as yours is a great plus! I would definitely encourage every female student studying a technical subject out there to apply for the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship next year! Good luck! :)
