Celebrating International Women's Day - Female Techies ! Rawr [Work in Progress]

You will hate me for saying, I really don't know. I have meant to write about this topic a lot, but not sure where to begin. I only have observations,  but cannot comprehend what I am seeing in boot camps, events, hackathons... Hopefully this will make sense soon.

Without a doubt there has to be a difference. In fact there's a difference between everyone, everyone's learning style begs to differ. To celebrate International Women's Day, I have decided to provide a list of resources instead. Destinations themselves are non-biased, unlike the individual articles. You may enjoy  this list for:

  • Finding women friendly environments
  • Finding women specific events
  • Understanding what other lady geeks have been doing
  • Understanding gender differences, learning styles
  • Designing your own programming education
  • Reading for fun :) Happy #IWD
