Emily Winch, lead programmer on the Nuno™ project, presented her talk “Software for Women” to an international audience at this year’s ACCU conference. She posed some provocative questions. Software is used pretty equally by men and women and yet the software industry is over 80% male. What is this about and what does it mean? Can we write better software for women? Would this actually be better software for everyone?
The talk was very well received and generated a lot of discussion. Emily is very good at making people think. You can see the slides from her talk here at www.slideshare.net.
