Are women bet­ter coders?

CityPress - - Trending -

The web went wild this week when Vice mag­a­zine pub­lished an ar­ti­cle ti­tled Women Are Bet­ter at Cod­ing than Men.

Ac­cord­ing to a study based on user re­sponses from github.com (a site where pro­gram­mers sub­mit open-source code), “women’s con­tri­bu­tions tend to be ac­cepted more of­ten than men’s”.

The war raged, but at the end, ev­ery­one agreed that the re­port was hope­lessly flawed and wasn’t sub­ject to peer re­view.
