Webgrrls back on Long Island

The real and avatar version of Ellen DePasquale.

It seems like Ellen DePasquale has two constituencies to please in her role as leader of the newly re-forming Long Island chapter of Webgrrls International.

One would be those hardcore tekkies looking to discuss the intricacies of, say programming and web design. The other – women professionals and business owners who are “not so tech savvy” and more in need of the basics.

“These are two very different sides of the coin,” said DePasquale, a software consultant and author, who expects the chapter will come to create programming for both.

All this will be discussed at the re-launch event April 27 in Farmingdale.

The goal, she says, “is to build a community and allow membership to steer the direction the chapter will take.”
