#ILookLikeAnEngineer

Tech is still remarkably sexist. On second thoughts maybe this is not so surprising because the world is still remarkably sexist.

It’s still pretty common to come across men who are “surprised” that women can code. A lot of them are also surprised that they can code well.

I’ve been lucky to have studied and worked (and still do) with some pretty amazing female coders and – shock horror – they’re as diverse a group as their male counterparts. Some are weird, some are geeky, some are introverts, and some are party animals.

The #ILookLikeAnEngineer hashtag campaign on Twitter aims to highlight exactly that. Check out what people are posting.
