An article titled “Australian ‘Code Like a Girl’ program created to foster community & inspire next gen. female coders”, was published in a recent edition of GirlTalkHQ. The article reported that there is a movement in the field of computer science to encourage more women to train as computer programmers and technical engineers. An Australian organisation called “Code Like a Girl”1 has been established to encourage girls into these occupations and to break down the stereotypes in this male dominated industry. This scenario is in contrast to clinical coding, which is a female-dominated industry. The article prompted me to think about Boys Who Code.
