As a female software software engineer, I enjoy coding. While I’m writing code or debugging, I’m extremely focused and peaceful. Some girls might want to learn to code themselves or be forced to do so. I summarize below 5 reasons that girls should learn to code.
#1. Parents influence on what to study: If you have opportunity to go to any tech companies and Look at the areas of software development, you will see a lot Asian female faces. How girls become software engineer? American should learn from the strict Asian Parents.
#2. To find a smart boyfriend: When you start to learn programming, you will have a lot of opportunities to meet and work with smart boys. They will probably be millionaire someday. Since they are nerds, the odds are they are loyal to you.
#3. To get a good pay job: Among all the occupations, software engineer is one of the most in -demand jobs in the United states. It is also one of the highest paid engineering job.
#4. You don’t need to be good at math: It is a stereotype that if you are not good at math, you probably shouldn’t study science or engineering. It is not necessary true for software programming or software engineering, because there are existing data structures and algorithms. You can just use them.
#5. Girls want to explore different things: Give girls time to figure out what they want in their life. There are so many jobs they can try out first, artist, accountant, lawyer, doctors etc. They will eventually find out whether Software programming or coding can keep them interested.
