    I was just wondering how many programmers are actually female.
    I know this sounds a bit weird but the most programmers i have met is mostly male and i can only think of 3 female programmers that I know.

    I would say, according to the females in my program, 90% of programmers are males.

    If indeed so, why?

    Does women in general dislike programming? Or is it just that women don't like programming because it doesn't interest them?

    >Or is it just that women don't like programming because it doesn't interest them?
    This seems to be the most logical conclusion, though programming doesn't interest the majority of the population, so that's no surprise. Before I really gave programming a shot, I considered it a 'guy thing', mostly because every famous programmer was male. I think that the female mind is better suited to programming, but most females have better things on their minds. It takes a certain amount of interest + insanity to stick with computers long enough to get the full effect.

    Most female programmers I've met are pretty switched on.

    If only they were all as sexy as Rachel Leigh Cook ...or Prelude (if you've seen her pic you'll know what I mean ).

    *ahem* by definition programmers are insane. . .

    - programmer

    that's one of xterra's trademark posts... need i say more?

    the only reason why there's only one female listed in the poll is because bassy hasn't ventured across the general board yet.

    Did you actually knew that the first programmer ever was a woman? her name was Ada Lovelace, and I believe that there is an alternate programming language still around called Ada.
