Women considered better coders – but only if they hide their gender

When a group of computer science students decided to study the way that gender bias plays out in software development communities, they assumed that coders would be prejudiced against code written by women.

After all, women make up a very small percentage of software developers – 11.2% according to one 2013 survey – and the presence of sexism in all corners of the overwhelmingly male tech industry has been well documented.

So the student researchers were surprised when their hypothesis proved false – code written by women was in fact more likely to be approved by their peers than code written by men. But that wasn’t the end of the story: this only proved true as long as their peers didn’t realize the code had been written by a woman.

2016 Indie Visual Novel Developer Demographic Survey

Hey everyone! We ran a demographic survey back in 2014 about our community of developers and we are doing it again!

If you are a developer of Visual Novels and wish to contribute please fill out the survey here!

I would also really appreciate it if you could reblog this post or share it where there are communities of developers, especially languages other than english. I want to try and capture as much of our diversity as possible :)

Thank you and please let me know if you have any questions!

The thing about computer programming is that it’s a complete pain in the ass when you’re trying to figure out the problem, yet when you finally solve it, when you finally have that aha moment, the feeling of accomplishment is unlike anything you’ve felt when you’ve accomplished something. You think holy shit, I can make technology work, and that feeling is totally worth the long stretch of hours or even days when computer programming feels like a pain in the ass.

Improving Brain Research Worldwide through the Intel® Modern Code Developer Challenge

By Roger Chandler on September 21, 2015

One of the ways we take our stewardship of Moore’s Law seriously at Intel is by sponsoring contests and challenges for the developer community. With the help of partners, we offer developers incentives and platforms that spur the advancement of technology, leading to new ways to make lives better and help real people.

I’m excited to share some details about the Intel Modern Code Challenge, a student-only contest for parallel programmers around the world, just launched in partnership with CERN openlab and Newcastle University. Entrants will use modern code principles to optimize an application to make it run as fast as possible. This faster code will then be made available to the broader research community as open source.

The code being optimized is part of a CERN openlab project that has the overall aim of helping researchers identify the causes and potential treatments for neurodevelopmental diseases such as epilepsy, autism, and schizophrenia. By optimizing this brain-simulation code for parallelization, students will be helping scientists analyze huge pools of data faster and more efficiently.

The prizes awarded in this challenge are really amazing. The student with the fastest optimized code wins the Grand Prize—a coveted nine-week internship at CERN openlab located at the CERN headquarters near Geneva, Switzerland. For context, thousands of students compete for only a handful of these internships every year. Additionally, three First Place winners receive a trip to Switzerland and a tour of CERN, while three Second Place winners attend the Supercomputing Conference 2016 (SC16).

The Challenge is sponsored by Intel’s Software & Services Group and is open now until October 29, 2015. If you or someone you know is a student programmer with experience in programming for parallel computing or an interest in learning more, come to the Intel Modern Code Challenge site for all the details.

15 PHP Video Sharing Scripts for Developers
Ever since YouTube came into existence, it has completely changed the way people watch videos. With easy availability of the videos on this portal, people could watch their favourite videos on the go. YouTube made video sharing incredibly easy. Once this website became popular, many other such portals followed suit. Video portals like DailyMotion, Vimeo, MetaCafe and a few others have become quite popular these days. If you are thinking about creating your own video portal then you have certainly come to the right place. There are a lot of things you need to consider before developing a portal for video sharing. But the most important thing you need to get started with is the video sharing scripts. There are a number of scripts to design a video sharing portal. However, not all of them are the best. You need a script that can give you the right kind of features. This is the reason why we have compiled a list of 15 video sharing scripts creating using PHP. These scripts offer a great deal of useful features that are quite important to create video portals as well as ecommerce portals. These scripts will allow you to display the videos effectively and efficiently and also let you upload the music.

Why Javascript Development is Crazy
Web development is fun! Javascript is … daunting. Everything else in web development clicks for you, but when you dig into Javascript it’s like you’re missing some big, foundational piece of knowledge that everyone else has that would help you make sense of it all. The truth is, yes, you’re missing a few pieces to the puzzle. But also, the current state of the art in frontend development is actually crazy.

There is some truth in this article :)
