  1. ☛ Reflecting on a Summer at Girls Who Code

    girlswhocode:

    Girls Who Code has also provided a way to explore the applications of computer science via curriculum and speakers. Before I entered the program, I was interested in coding but I didn’t see the practical applications of it. The exposure to many speakers, workshops and field trips have made it easier to imagine one’s self in a tech workplace.

    I’ve spoken to four Girls Who Code classes this summer, and they’ve been some of the most energetic, pumped-up, smart, passionate teenagers I’ve ever experienced.

    Even in 2014, the stereotype persists that “a computer programmer” is a scruffy white/asian male who sits in a cubicle all day with a computer never interacting with other humans. Showing these girls that it’s a real option for them is key to encouraging them and girls like them to pursue software engineering as the awesome career that it is.

    There’s lots to fix about our industry for the women who are already here, but Girls Who Code are helping excite the next generation.

“You live in a city like San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, wherever you are, there’s so much stuff you could be doing in your free time. There are all these great restaurants, there are bars, there are shows, there are art exhibits, there are hikes you could be doing, there are weird, crazy bizarre things that only exist in your city. 
The problem is, it’s really hard to find out about it. Sosh is trying to be that for you. We’re trying to gather all the best things in the city and present what you should know about what you’d want to do. 
The beauty is, this is what excited me four years ago and I’m still hand-waving excited four years later. We haven’t solved it. We’ve come a long way, one in six people aged 20 - 40 living in San Francisco is a Sosh member, and there’s still no shortage of things we can do.”
