Plan of action: we need more women in programming! - RedDotRubyConf 2017

Published on: Monday, 26 June 2017

Speaker: Marion Schleifer, Junior Software Developer, Simplificator AG

It is no news that there are not enough women in programming. As a (female) career changer, I know how a lot of people (and especially women) think about programming. I am now a Ruby programmer and programming is completely different than i imagined it would be. And I love it! Therefore, I am putting a lot of my time and energy into educating women about programming. I want to talk about why we don't have enough women in programming, why we need more, and what we all can do to achieve that goal.
