Meet The Women Coders Who Are Britain’s New Face Of Tech…
The world of computer coders has classically been the domain of scrawny dateless male geeks getting ever more squinty-eyed behind laptops in garages and other man caves.
But, it’s undergone a much-needed makeover in recent years, with women getting under the skin of software and apps to carve out a digital niche for themselves — and not a minute too soon.
The ABCs of C++
In recent years, stylish and user-friendly female-run coding schools like Decoded and Steer have cropped up on the Silicon Roundabout scene, proving that you don’t have to have a computer science degree to understand the basics of BASIC.
Kathryn Parsons, co-founder and co-CEO of international coding school Decoded — which promises to teach newbies to code in a day — says that half their students over the years have been female. She marvels, ‘There’s something about being part of a campaign to take away the myth and cliché of what technology looks like — guys in basements, like in that film The Social Network.’
Parsons, who launched her own branding company at 26 and consistently appears on UK tech top lists, doesn’t believe skills and style are mutually exclusive but sees environment as an essential part of learning. ‘When you come and learn with us it’s in a beautiful space, thousands of square feet, we measure the temperature and have an in-house chef,’ she says adding that Decoded’s two-week coding pop-up in Sydney was filmed in the house where Australia’s Next Top Model was shot. Such smart styling has helped make coding more attractive to women. ‘We’re the friendly face of technology — no jargon, we decode it, demystify it’, she says.
