WHAT: Valparaiso University presents the Computing and Humanity Speaker Series, which invites women working at the forefront of both computing research and industry to share their work and reflect on its impact to society.

This lecture intends to explore what it means to be a maker in a world where the time between having an idea and having that idea become reality continually decreases.

WHO: Laura Puckett ’02 will discuss “The Vocation of Making.” Puckett is a leader in business analysis and product management who develops cutting-edge enterprise mobile applications with Lextech. She will explore how far we have come — and how much is possible — within the intersection of technology and life.

WHEN: Tuesday, Nov. 17, 7 p.m.

WHERE: Neils Science Center room 234, Valparaiso University
