Google Takes On The Gender Gap With “Made With Code”

The demographics of tech are pretty white and male, but Google and a huge alliance are looking to get more girls coding, reports the Mary Sue.

You can see more at the Google Blog and of course the website.

I strongly applaud this.  Coding is literacy of a technical age, and everyone should know something about it.  Addressing demographic issues in distributions of knowledge is part of having a functional society and civilization.

A few things you can do:

  • Host an event.
  • Be a mentor
  • Invite these people to your con or club.
  • Promote this!
