Passion for Programming

Recently, I met a (male) colleague at the coffee machine and told him how excited I was about solving a tough coding problem. He was completely surprised to learn that I code and I love to do it. I was taken aback by this reaction, but he told me that he’d never met women with a passion for coding who keep doing it after their junior years. And when I think about this and look at the women in IT whom I know in person, I can understand his perception.
