Ran into these young women in Chelsea. They told me they’d just met at a summer programming course called Girls Who Code. “The program tries to close the gender gap in technology,” they told me. “We’ve learned a lot of awesome things. But the best part is that we’ve gotten to meet some really cool female programmers. It’s much less intimidating knowing that there are women in the field who are happy, well-adjusted, and doing awesome things. It’s good to know that programmers aren’t just pale guys who sit alone in their basements.”
