Weâve also posted videos about women who are using code in their dream jobs, like Miral, Danielle, Erica and other inspirational girl coders â like Brittany Wenger, who is using code to fight cancer. And, weâve developed a few steps parents can take at home to get their daughters excited about computer science. Read more about the initiative here.
