About this item

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 the technology industry. Women coders, developers, designers, and programmers are a powerful force today. In this collection of articles, the authors share their personal experiences on what it takes to create a career in this field. Many of these women are involved with innovations 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. Topics tackled by the articles in this remarkable collection include: Where are all the women in technology? Many hold prominent positions as founders of successful companies, but we often forget to mention that in discussion.

Social Engineering: An increasing number of women serve technical projects in what's often perceived as a nurturing role. Tech Startups: Why what is often considered the riskiest professional venture can be the most satisfying personal route. Are there more female-friendly programming languages? Consider the merits of Python for women. Is there gender inequality? Do you care? Or is it not a part of the equation for personal success at all? Face-to-face collaboration: Suggestions for how to build stronger tech communities, starting with making all feel welcome.

And there is much more. This collection gives you a glimpse at the lives offemale technologists. You will find that each viewpoint-from system administrators to CEOs, from those just beginning promising careers to the retired-expands and enriches the discussion of gender in our world today.
