⏰ Agenda:

▶ 7:00 pm Welcome from moinworld and SHARE NOW

▶ 7:10 pm Born for IT? - How the image of software developers came about (Birgitta Boeckeler, https://www.linkedin.com/in/birgittaboeckeler/)

This talk traces back the steps of the programmer profession to its beginnings over 70 years ago, and reflects on how those beginnings might have shaped our image of programmers. The “programmer brand” in society today is still the omnipresent stereotype of a socially-awkward, white man. Do boys really “just like computers more”? What shaped the profession and how non-programmers and potential aspiring programmers perceive it? How might all that be connected to our ongoing struggle to achieve more diversity in the industry?

▶ 7:30 pm Networking on Rooftop
