A weekly dose of inspirational stories about women in tech
Each issue will include stories about women in tech who are doing amazing and inspiring work. It will also include tips, advice and resources on coding for those who are just getting started.


I've had an intense morning. I launched DiversifyTech on Product Hunt today. I thought I'd be lucky if I make it in the top 20. At this moment as I'm writing this message it's at #2! 😂

The funny thing is I was considering not launching it. I had so many mixed emotions, like this isn't ready, this isn't worthy enough to share, and this won't make a difference. I had already postponed it by a week. I thought I'll launch it next year.

I am so glad I calmed my negative thoughts. It may not be "ready" but I got it out there. The outpouring of positive comments and support has been amazing. Now, I can figure out what to add and how to improve the site based on people's feedback. Instead of being stuck at step one. I moved forward to step two.

If are thinking that you are not ready to apply for that job, get that promotion or whatever you next step is, try it and see what happens ❤️. What's the worst that could happen?
