Women and web development, two words that years ago were not associated. Fortunately, things are changing!
WOMEN IN WEB DVELOPMENT
The creation of the internet goes back more than half a century, and in its early days, this world was almost exclusively male because women were not necessarily interested in the code. But little by little they knew how to put their stone in the building!
Women are more and more numerous in web development but they remain in minority numbers compared to men. They represent 25% of the developer community thanks to these last years. As 42% of the new generation are processors.
WOMEN AND TECH
The technical teams are mostly made up of men, but women have been nesting there for a few years. Indeed, there is a good increase in the number of women in development schools, from 10 to 20%. In parallel with women taking their marks on the digital school benches, many initiatives are emerging like StartHer or Girls in Tech in order to promote diversity in the digital ecosystem. More and more emblematic personalities of women’s development are spreading their code on social networks.
Finally, we can not close this paragraph without talking about Roxanne Varza, who runs Station F, the largest start-up campus in the world, in Paris. Being fully rooted in the startup ecosystem, Urban Linker has seen the number of start-ups launched by women accelerate, such as our customers Leetchi, Vizeat, Afrimarket and Treatwell.
To conclude on this subject of the feminine recruitments, ladies, you should know that you are slightly favored! Team diversity has become a major issue for companies (especially for start-ups). The tech teams ask only that: a feminine look on projects and development!
Girls, startups need you for a more mixed code!
