Reason for being involved in workshop: As an experienced woman in tech, I appreciate and want to be a part of efforts which provide enablement and opportunity for women and those who have not traditionally been called upon to share their knowledge. Women have a long history in computing and there was a shift in the 80's where movies like Weird Science and War Games starred boys and commercials from Apple and Radio Shack marketed to boys. I was one of those girls who had an interest in programming but had the impression that computers and programming were only for boys. I see a future where women are no longer an underrepresented minority in the computing and tech fields.
