Women in Coding

We are in the middle of big changes in technology: the move to cloud, explosion of mobile and open source software, data platforms encompassing Hadoop and shifting from relational to NoSQL. These changes mean that enterprises are hiring significant new developer teams that require an entirely new set of skills from existing tech workers. This panel will address key questions around this change and whether or not this can be an opportunity to attract more women to coding. Questions raised will include: Does this massive opportunity create an opening to reinvent the developer environment? Could this be a trigger to get more women into coding to fill critical job openings? How can organizations take advantage of these moments of transition to create a more diverse tech workforce?
