Description
 

Research shows that around the age of 12, both boys and girls have a similar level of interest in computer science. The difference is that girls are half as likely to be encouraged to explore it.


Supergirls: The women who rise above social stigmas to code, build, and dominate tech explores the stereotypes, social stigmas, and culture that surround the women and girls who wish to further their education and career in the tech industry.


In this book, youll learn about the amazing female coders who have created, and are creating, the future of tech. Some of the stories include:


  • Sofia Ongele - a nineteen-year-old coding superstar who developed ReDawn.
  • Angela Rucci - the CEO and Co-Founder of the app, Tego.
  • Ada Lovelace - credited as the worlds first computer programmer.


Youll also read about Sophie Maniscalcos experiences and journey through coding and her eventual co-founding of Supergirls Code, an organization that empowers and teaches girls to code in all-girl environments. You dont have to be a coder to enjoy this book. Read Supergirls for the inspiration you need to turn your dreams into reality.
