  • Emily Winch presents at the ACCU conference

    CherSoft developers have been attending ACCU conferences for many years. In a first for CherSoft, at this year's conference our Nuno developer Emily Winch will be presenting a session entitled “Software for Women”, in which she discusses the implications of an industry that's 90% male writing software for users who are often 50% or more female.

  • ACCU Conference Update

    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.
