Congratulations to a successful Women in Tech Conference Asia 2017. Among the American speakers present were Sophie Guerin, Head of Diversity & Inclusion for Asia Pacific, Greater China, and Japan (APJ) at Dell who spoke on grooming and mentoring talent into next generation leaders, Jessica Chen Riolfi, Head of Asia at TransferWise who talked about big data, and Dr. Bidushi Bhattacharya, former NASA scientist, who discussed the benefits of space technology.
#SayYesCareer Tip of the Day:
Don’t struggle alone. •
Sometimes there’s only so far you can take a life goal before you need a fresh perspective. This can be anything - maybe you’re training for a half marathon or taking the entrepreneur leap, and no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to break through that glass ceiling. At this point, take the time to call on the advice of a friend, family, mentor or coach that may have been through a similar experience. You'll be surprised how it changes your mindset towards achieving your goal.
Today I'm at the @autotraderuk offices in Manchester learning to code my first Ruby on Rails application with @railsgirls!
I thought this would be the perfect occasion to wear another tee from @feministapparel!
“The Cultural Conundrums of Women in Tech that we need to be aware of” by @booleanhunter ⠀
"Women in Tech. We’re all over the news these days and a lot of it isn’t great. Workplace sexism at Uber has hit the social media limelight several times, followed by a flurry of open letters written by women addressing their employers. And now the latest: the Google Manifesto.⠀
Amidst all this furor, lot of other equally relevant stories go unheard. I’m a software developer from India. Lakhs of students here graduate in Computer Science and Engineering every year. And I’ve noticed a common characteristic amongst all of them — my fellow programmers were for the most part, men.⠀
The Indian tech ecosystem has both a skill problem and a diversity problem. Here’s the scenario —⠀
- Reports suggest that less than 5% to 10% of engineering grads in India are actually employable.⠀
- Only a small percentage of students actually get a programming based job in a product company. Even fewer students join startups. Out of which, a very small percentage are actually women.⠀
What one does with the truth is more difficult than you think."⠀

Today is the fifth annual National Learn to Code Day! 🇨🇦 Ladies Learning Code (@learningcode) is hosting a workshop today in over 35 cities across the country (including mine!) about AI and Machine Learning. Sadly I can’t make it because I’m volunteering at the science centre, but it sounds like a fun day! With that in mind, I tried to choose my book in line with that theme. 💻
“9 Algorithms that Changed the Future” by John MacCormick is definitely a pop-sci read. If you’re in tech, this might be a little too layperson for you, but if you’re not, this is such a great book! I took a course in university called Computers in Society and did a book report on it, and actually consulted my report to write this post because I read the book once three years ago and don’t remember a lot of details. 🤓
MacCormick’s definition of a “great” algorithm is one that ordinary computers use regularly, addresses a concrete problem, and relates to the theory of computer science. The ones he chooses to discuss include algorithms related to search engines, pattern recognition, and public-key cryptography, among others. He also devotes one of his nine chapters to an algorithm which does not (and cannot) exist, which is a program that detects all possible crashes in other programs. This book was super accessible and straightforward to read, and I remember liking how it broke things down to get at a core idea behind how different algorithms work. I really recommend it if you’re curious about computer science but don’t have much background in it!
A related book on my to-read list: “Superintelligence”, by Nick Bostrom is about artificial intelligence. I had to return this book to the library before getting very far into it, but the little I did read dealt with some of the philosophical questions surrounding intelligent machines. My university sadly didn’t offer its AI course until the year after I graduated, so I want to learn more about it!
Listen to these inspirational Girls in Tech and their stories ❤✨ Link in bio!
Thank you for partipicating ladies! @juliah @jessicanaziri @codergirl_ @girlknowstech @msbrandymorgan @computersciencebarbie @kolga300 you're wonderful human beings 😘
Let's debate this; is it compulsory to follow back? I get a lot of people who accuse me that they have patronized from @nellies.ng and I don't follow them or give them a shoutout 🙆🏾🤦🏾♀️
I know our business pages are for our customers but then how can someone be waiting for you to follow them back since last week! Will you follow back? Please let's table this matter once and for all!
