Presented at TEDx Bay Area Women Global Entrepreneurs 2012 http://tedxbayarea.com

I share the stories of three women who have changed from careers in finance, education and economics to development and programming. We’ll look at how society has valued individuals with the ability to create. I will highlight contributions made by different countries such as the technique of extracting Tyrian purple from sea snails, the process for creating parchment from animal skins and the Gutenberg printing press which made literacy accessible. I’ll round up with obstacles new programmers face in getting started and wrap up with actionable items.
