Code – Debugging the Gender Gap – Movie Screening

03/04/2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Code, program, computer
By 2020, there will be one million unfilled software jobs in the USA.  While the market is growing, America is not meeting the need to educate programmers quickly enough.
Code, movie, software

Code movie explores gender gap in Software engineering positions

Coding boot camps and other coding schools, including an increasing number of public and private high schools that offer programming, are helping to fill the gap – but girls and women are still not proportionately represented in the candidate pool.  Even though more girls are pursuing computer education

The film Code: Debugging the Gender Gap, highlights ground breaking efforts that are producing more diverse programmers and shows how this critical gap can be closed.
Expert voices from the worlds of tech, psychology, science and education offer inspiring and compelling stories to fight complacency in the tech industry.
