Google is offering travel grants to women who want to attend Debconf 15.  (via the Debian Project's Identi.ca account: https://identi.ca/debian/note/XyOl2SaoSJ65B4RgrY8hhQ ) 
To help break down the barriers that prevent underrepresented groups in computer science from attending leading tech conferences, we're excited to offer Google Travel and Conference Grants for selected conferences in Computer Science and related fields.

Linux + FLOSS + Chicago + Hacking + Fun : )
Introduction
We are a group of technology and open source enthusiasts in or near Chicago, IL. While our group has historically focused on Linux, we have branched out in recent years. Our members and participants now have a broad range of interests and include users of all the major operating systems.

We host periodic meetings in and around Chicago that feature talks on a wide variety of interesting topics related to technology and high-tech culture.

Also of interest are our frequent Programming Tonight gatherings. These informal events give members the opportunity to work together on projects, both code-related and otherwise. PT generally takes place at a coffee shop on a Friday evening.
