This, exactly! I remember the times of euphoria when solving mathematical problems...I compared it with sex.

O.K. I will not contest your numbers, but, if you want diversity, join an open source project and quit your belly aching.

Yes, I actually put your thoughts towards defensive more than ashamed. Also, who cares why you're arguing what you're arguing, I don't care either way (to do so would be an ad hominen; I'm sorry if it sounded that way).

Well, I am more worried about us males then us white folk with regards to industry diversity. I like that the article acknowledges that growing industry demands overseas are working that out already.

Women in CS is different. Namely, CS is the only STEMM field in which female enrollment had declined over the last three decades; all others have had a steady increase. Studies have been done to try and figure this out and theories proposed. One study I think is fascinating, young women who have higher exposure to the Internet are negatively correlated with CS enrollment. Maybe the ShitRedditSays (TM) isn't helping (for example). It's tough to be the alien (I experienced imposter syndrome second and firsthand tutoring and when I launched head first into abstract math with a computer engineering background, respectively).

Interesting. I wonder: does Google frown upon 'google' used as a verb?

The article missed a rather glaringly obvious flaw in their logic: the reason Google probably kept those words from being autocompleted was likely because kids use these phones too >__>

What is this? I find this very offensive.

Thank you for not remaining silent +Roberto Benitez - My comments were also in reference to the industry/ community as a whole, not just this tag. I really appreciate you bringing my attention to this issue and I will be taking this particular code example and the issue as a whole across to my Women in Media & IT discussion community. I can't stand arguing on forums where people just want to oppose your view, even when your view is simply a common-sense, humanist one. Thank you for your comments, they have restored a bit of my faith in the community. Cheers.

Taking +Darren Bell 's comment further, why not use a tool like Gradle?  Gradle is Maven-spec compatible (you can even generate pom's with it's Maven plugin), simple to use, and extremely extensible.

Ant is quite ant-iquated (nyuk nyuk) at this point, and there's plenty of ways to generate artifacts these days that are much simpler and definitely more manageable.
