SXSW 2013 / Hacker girls why aren't there more women coders

I ended up in this panel when I couldn't get into the Google Glass panel. I'm glad I did.

The panel discussed the under-representation of women programmers, why that is and how to change it. There is a growing demand for programmer talent and girls can fill that need. I had an idea for my daughter's Girl Scout Gold Award project which came from this discussion. I've pitched the idea to her... but I'm still awaiting her final decision.
