ECOOP'15 is in PRAGUE!  and the submission site (http://ecoop2015.hotcrp.com) has opened today...    This year ECOOP will include a number of new events with amazing speakers...  It would be a shame to miss that (or the Beer crawl on Friday at the end of the conference).

"In 2012 we decided to completely review our Computer Science BSc. [...] In order to support the First Year we made two decisions. The first was to use Racket as the programming technology."

Handy for students in my compilers class.
I'm teaching a class next week, and in their work environment, the students are limited to using Python 2.4. I wanted to be clear about what features of Python they'd have available, and which they wouldn't. The "What's New in Python" docs are very comprehensive, but spread out across many pages ...

"I no longer touch code because I couldn't deal with the constant dismissing and undermining of even my most basic work by the "brogramming" gulag I worked for. And that started even when I was in school. I was the ONLY female in my university's mid-level programming courses and even though I worked to hard to always be in the top 95% of the curve, if a pasty white guy with thin-rimmed glasses and a tee-shirt with an "ironic" phrase doubted me, I was wrong."
Last Friday, Valleywag published a post about the tech sector's increasing abuse of the term “culture fit” as a way to discriminate against potential hires who don't match the pattern of a successful startup employee. It prompted an outpouring of responses from readers about their own abysmal experiences with the euphemism.

Hm... Why half? I guess like 80-90% of population are unwilling or incapable (most of them probably both) to do CS. Is it a problem? Personally I don't think so, there is a bunch of other stuff to do. But probably I'm wrong and we really do need more people. But, if it's all about CS needing more people... shouldn't we encourage people (regardless of their sex) to join? Or do we really need more women? Sounds like sexism to me...
Next, you say that woman are tech. qualified and like computers... but that's just meaningless: you are missing the quantifier ;) I guess \exists would work while \forall will be wrong. Exactly the same will be true for men. Well, qualitatively. But what about numbers? In my experience men group will be way bigger. And in my opinion there is nothing wrong with that. I bet there are some natural reasons for that. And btw, I never saw these cultural problems you are talking about... and I'm studying/working in a mostly-male communities since my high school...
