Ed & Ashley's 5 Minute Show

Hello there!

It’s been quite a long time since this blog has been updated, many apologies for that. As it turns out, Ashley and I have been off living our lives in the tech industry. Currently we both work for Microsoft! Ashley is a tester with SharePoint and I’m a technology enabler, helping students create cool stuff with Microsoft technology (not my actual job title). We now live across the country from each other (Seattle and DC) and that has made updating this show extremely difficult. We’ve decided to retire as show hosts and producers.

Don’t worry though! Ashley and I are still very active in the women in tech scene. Ashley organizes events for Teaching Kids Programming in the Seattle area. You can also find her on Twitter, @OrganizeFISH. I’m very involved with the DigiGirlz events in my area and I speak to a lot of women in STEM student groups on college campuses. You can find me on my blog, CreepyEd’s Tech-cellent Adventure, and on Twitter, @creepyed. Of course, you can also find us in-person at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing.

We’ll miss you,

Ed & Ashley
