The conference will be held October 2-5, 2013, in Minneapolis, MN. Students who attended this conference last year in Baltimore had great things to say:
"Grace Hopper was a totally exceptional experience. I had the opportunity for three on-site interviews, which offered great practice with technical interviews." -- Emily Scheerer, Computer Science
"It was great meeting a bunch of new people from all around the country at the conference as well as networking with many of the biggest names in technology, like Facebook, Twitter, Apple, and Microsoft. I know getting to meet these recruiters in person was a huge opportunity and I am very optimistic in my chances of getting an internship on the west coast, which is one of my dreams." -- Alec Pulianas, Computer EngineeringRegistration costs $290 until 7/26, then goes up to $310 from 7/27 until the deadline of 9/25.
