When you look around your classroom or office (mobile office at a coffee shop counts too), what do you see? Do you see mostly guy coders in t-shits and hoodies or is there a healthy mix of both male and female developers? Hopefully it’s the latter. But that often isn’t the case in many developer settings. It’s important to acknowledge that the gender gap in programming is still a challenge.
In our earlier post, we’ve identified that despite massive technological advancement, today only 1 in 10 programmers is a woman. To understand better possible reasons behind the gender gap, we turned to the data from our own Developer Economics survey. Our infographic sums up some of the findings from the the 18th edition of our Developer Economics survey, fielded between November 2019 and February 2020. The survey reached more than 17,000 developers in 159 countries.
