Tech-Savvy Ladies Discuss How Chicks Can Code

“The web was only created in 1994. So if you wanted to start learning to code as a kid, you would have been, at most, eight years old. Which would have meant you were born in 1986, which means that no one in the tech industry could be older than 26, which is clearly not the case. I learned to code when I was 24, laid off, and desperate for a marketable skill. Maybe I wasn’t as old as you are, but I definitely wasn’t a kid, or a teen, or even a college student. Now, I don’t work as a CTO at a fancy startup (yet), but I do make money by putting my technical skills to work for other people and companies.”
