You're going to live a healthier life when you get the new Apple Watch simply because you won't be able to afford groceries once you buy it. #pricing   #blahblahwatch   #atleastitlookslikeithasnfc  #apple

Me [Female software engineer]: OMG. It's not working! I must have done something wrong! What could it possibly be? triple check everything before looking for other culprits, despite their frequent occurrence in my type of work 

Husband +Shane Conder [Male software engineer]: OMG. It's not working! Someone else must have done something wrong! I am annoyed at having to waste of my time to figure this out! blame IDE/tools/sdk/lack of documentation/computer/drivers/bugs/known issues  *only double checks own work when other options exhausted*

Usually it's not my mistake, so I am trying to train myself to step through the potential culprits from most to least likely instead of wasting time worrying that I did something silly.

This is simply another one of those gender differences I see in my daily working life. It's not really about confidence (most people would agree I have that in spades), so much as my desire to be polite and not place blame on anyone or anything else unless I am 100% sure of my answer. 99% sure is not enough. 

It's also something I have noticed in other engineers. And readers of our books. Male readers are much more likely to send us accusatory messages when they don't understand something in our books, whereas female readers are more likely to claim it must be something they are not quite grasping.

Breakfast made by husband? Great. 
Being able to disable smoke alarm from bed? Priceless.

Available today, the much-anticipated Lego set featuring female engineers and scientists! Pretty sure this was mentioned at #io14  in the robotics talk. I just picked up a set for my daughter (and, let's be honest, ME).  #womenintech   #girlsintechnology  #toys #lego
