Michael Choi, founder and chief instructor of Coding Dojo, a coding bootcamp in Seattle and San Francisco, wrote a commentary for Fortune with tips for women in tech to break through the male-dominated programming and developing fields. In writing about the tech gender gap, Choi noted:
As Google… recently revealed, women make up only 17% of the company’s technical workforce. At Facebook… , it’s 15%. And while women make up 57% of U.S. college students, they earn only 18% of computer science degrees.
Choi sees the light at the end of the tunnel, however, and believes tech companies are making strides to close the tech gender gap.
