    Gender

    I've been wondering lately what percentage of programmers are female. In my high school, there are absolutely none. That's depressing. I realize, however, that my school is not indicitive of the whole world. I hope that the CBoard is. I'm interested in seeing how many females are posting on this board. Just curious is all

    "The computer programmer is a creator of universes for which he alone is responsible. Universes of virtually unlimited complexity can be created in the form of computer programs." -- Joseph Weizenbaum.

    "If you cannot grok the overall structure of a program while taking a shower, you are not ready to code it." -- Richard Pattis.

    I'd almost rather not have a gf who programs, because I wouldn't really want to talk about programming to my gf. If she does program then that's still perfectly just as fine, but I still wouldn't want to discuss programming much with her. However, this doesn't mean that I wouldn't discuss programming with a girl who is only a friend.

    If the poll receives a lot of results then you'll be surprised just how many people here are girls.

    I would love to have a computer geek GF...I'm actually on a quest to find one that isn't ugly and has a good sense of humor (sorry for stereotyping, but it is hard to find [I still haven't]).

    Well, I was wodering about the same thing here...
    I hope many people vote in this poll, so we can have a clear picture...
    Maybe gender can be added to the profile, so we can get more precise statistics.
    none...

    Prelude, Doubleanti, and I dont know anymore...I think that chicks are just not interested generally in computers. Though ofcourse this doesn't apply to every person

    LMAO

    I agree however, there are not many good looking programmers, plus the majority are males anyway.

    And this pole has been done before.......
