I'm seeing great things posted about the Grace Hopper Women in Tech conference wrapping up today. I've got severe FOMO and might want to attend next year.

But they are going to have to hold it in a state where it is legal for me to pee in a public restroom, and not one that allows state-sponsored hate.

July 18, 1992: The First Photo Uploaded to the Web, of CERN’s All-Girl Science Rock Band "Les Horribles Cernettes" ("The Horrible CERN Girls" in English)

The group sang love songs about colliders, quarks, liquid nitrogen, microwaves, and antimatter in ’60s-inspired outfits.

(the article contains the songs and funny lyrics, it's not that bad! 😀 )

What is the reason behind the lack of widespread interest in IT among both men and women?

Why is there a shortage of skilled labor in such a crucial field today, and why isn't there a surge in the pursuit of technical education?

Who is the minority choosing IT-related fields and why?

Karen Sandler is this September’s star of passbolt’s Women In STEM series. 🤩

@karen is Executive Director of the @conservancy

She’s provided legal counsel to open source foundations, supported several nonprofits, delivers lectures, and helps lead Outreachy, a program for underrepresented individuals in tech. ❤️

👏 Let’s take a moment to celebrate all of her incredible contributions. 🍾

"Free and open source software is not necessarily better or more secure than proprietary software, but it does mean that we have a chance. Instead of having to wait for the company in question to acknowledge that there is a problem and to do something about it, anyone can take action.”

Devs, I have a master's degree and 12 years experience as an embedded software engineer. My boss just hired a certified electrician who took some basic programming classes, put him next to me and gave him the same job title as I have. I had to explain to him that the exclamation mark negates a logical expression and had to help him with using a static variable with conditions dependent on the previous state. What do I even do? I feel offended. At the same time, I don't want to make a big fuss about it because I'm worried they'll just see me as the "complaining woman". I'm otherwise enjoying my job right now, and they're supportive of my ongoing transition so I'd rather not switch jobs, even though I know I probably should. #softwaredevelopment #devs #programming #womenintech

@cfiesler My favorite story about women and computing: I was on a group nature trip a few years back. There was a a sub group of 3 women friends among us. People speculated that they were retired nurses, teachers or social workers. When I talked to them, it turned out they were all at Bell Labs helping bring about the the birth of modern computing. #WomenInTech #ComputerHistory

Career started in early 80s, yes I'm old. Always told, "watch out for young ones, they'll take your job soon". There's room for everyone! That's why I never stop learning. Home lab, #honeypots, cloud and more. That's also what #hackersummercamp is all about!

It's not about a badge, or who has more lights (unless it's blinky cat ears) It's about the villages, the talks, the contests and most important, Networking!! Get out, say hi, make a new friend. And if you need a break, take it.

Women are biologically less inclined to work in tech?

I recently wrote an article about #feminist technoscience. A field of study that concerns itself with the bias and perspectives we build into our developments. And discussed how we could balance out the male bias by hiring more women.

Not surprisingly, men felt they had to lecture me on how women are biologically not inclined to be interested in tech 🙄

If you know more about the history of tech, especially programming, you probably find this as absurd as I do.
But not everybody does. Most of the information about women in tech has been removed from the history book. They've become invisible.

This article is my response to this ludicrous claim.

What is your experience with men trying to make you feel unwelcome in this space?
