Developers Festival Keffi : Why Should Women Learn how to code? (1/1)

Hello WorldPulse Sisters,  

Its been a while i posted and also active here.  Life happens and i couldnt just come here to interact,  post and also comment on peoples post.  

Today @FashDami and I spoke and we mentioned WorldPulse and he just made me realise what i have missed here and why i should be active once again. So this is me coming out of my social media phobia.

I recently got an invitation to speak at Developers Festival organised by Google Developer Group in Keffi and i am asked to speak on "Why Women should learn how to code" . For me posting it here is to trigger some conversations here to also share with my audience, so my Worldpulse sisters , why do you think women should learn how to code? 

I Cannot wait to read all our comment. 

Thank You so much Fash Dami.

Hello, dear Bukola,

It's nice to have you back! We truly understand that there are responsibilities and priorities outside World Pulse, but we are so glad you are here.

Thanks to Fash Dami for encouraging you to post again. We do want to hear updates from you so we can walk alongside you on your journey.

Women should learn how to code to show the world that coding is not exclusive to men. Women can create designs that can be more caring and empathetic to women. It gives the IT world a feminine perspective. Just as there are women web users, there should also be women coders.

That's all I can think of right now. Maybe our sisters can add more. Thanks for facilitating this discussion with a great question. Please let us know how your talk went. We want to celebrate you here.

Have a great weekend!

Dear Bukola,
We are all glad to have you back. Honestly you are not alone in this. With world anxieties around us if you not careful some of our activities will cool down.

However, I am glad you made world pulse your priority to return back. We appreciate your come back!

Now on the coding Karen have summary it beautifully for us. Gone are those days when women are inside their cells, and besides the men have taken all the women careers nowadays, hairdressing, tailoring etc. We can go for coding to ha.
Have a great weekend dear.
Take care

Hello Bukola,

Welcome back!!! We're glad to have you back. Thank you FashDami!

I agree with what Karen wrote. Girls and women should also be able to have the exact same opportunities that boys and men enjoy, too. There's absolutely no reason why not.

Please keep us posted on how your talk and the festival goes, as well as what response you got. I'm looking forward to it.

Yasss Life happens and we end up happening above all. I am glad you are back Bukola.

Why should women code? Because women are humans because their brains function just right because they are adventurers because they are problem solvers because they can code just effectively because they can do anything they set their hearts to do. Yess women and girls can code and it's not even a question.
