Abstract

Careers in computing seem to be well placed to allow gender parity. The tools of the trade don't require any of the most common gender stereotypes. And yet, talented, educated women avoid going into the field - why? The preliminary research reported in this paper focuses specifically on computer programming, since coding is an area that has shown a strong statistical bias towards males with up to 92% of programmers being male. This paper aims to uncover and examine any differences in the coding abilities and approach of males and females.
