Beschrijving

With a witty and insightful series of essays and interviews, Women in Technology looks at the challenges, rewards, and frustrations of being a female in an industry dominated by men. Women coders, developers, designers, and programmers are a powerful force in the modern tech industry, and in thirty-one articles, female trailblazers and modern geeks focus on what it takes to create a career in this field.Many of these women are involved in innovative creations at large corporations, others work in academia or independently, and some are taking risks with creative start-ups. But they all share a passion for what they do. This book gives voice to their real-world experiences and concerns of technology's female side.Originally published as a series on the O'Reilly Network, Women in Technology is the brainchild of Tatiana Apandi, an associate editor at O'Reilly. Articles in this remarkable collection include: Where are all the women in technology? Tara Hunt shows reveals that many are in roles more prominent than we realize, as founders of Cisco, Mozilla, Flickr, Adaptive Path, and a lot more. Fifty Years of Change: Maria Klawe, President of Harvey Mudd College, takes us through decades of personal experience in technology. Social Engineering: Leslie Hawthorn explains how an increasing number of women serve technical projects in what's often perceived as a nurturing role. Tech Startups: Shaherose Charania and Shivani Sopory explain how the riskiest professional venture can be the safest personal route. Female-friendly programming languages? Anna Martelli Ravenscroft talks about the merits of Python for women. Advice for Geeky (and not so Geeky) Women: Dawn Foster shares her own methods for building (and keeping) a successful career --even if you're not half the geek that she is.That's just a small sample. Other essays focus on the importance of role models, making yourself visible, face-to-face collaboration, and more. All net proceeds will be sent to The Alliance of Technology&Women for their scholarship program to help increase the number of women and girls interested in pursuing careers in technology and to increase the number of women in executive roles.
