Programming a better future

What if more girls today would see programming and working in technology as a viable career option?

Even though there are a lot more girls working in programming and technology today than there were in the nineties when I was a teenager, men are still representing the major part of the workforce.

Programming a Better Future is a hackaton for girls 13 to 16 years old where they get to program a prototype of their own idea for an app. In october I participated in the event in Buenos Aires as a mentor accompanying the girls in their learning experience.

The creators of Ricomío: Venus Olivari, Brenda Rihsmoller and Naiara Gnes Nella from Colegio Francesco Faá di Bruno.
