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.


Nothing new from me this week. I've been in Madison, WI visiting family.

I'm getting ready to launch Diversify Tech on Product Hunt at the end of the month. I'm super nervous about it 🙀. I hate self promotion. At the same time, it is necessary and I'm excited to put it in front of more folks.

Also, if you are looking for a job in tech, please do share your information here. I'll be publicizing it over the next few weeks.

Happy Coding!
