If you look at Canadian universities in computer science courses today, you get a clear picture: the majority of students are male. Only rarely do you meet a woman in computer science lectures. Only one in five computer science students is female. Why is it that almost exclusively men work in IT?

Apple, Google and many other large companies no longer require employees to hold a university degree.
Both the quality and the importance of university education is becoming less important. According to CNBC, fewer and fewer companies are demanding a university degree, even if this was the norm before. Now everyone is following companies like Apple, Google and IBM.
Of course, this trend is not visible in all industries. No one wants to be operated on by a surgeon who has no university degree i...

Many believe programming is complicated and it is too hard to do anything with it. Either they have never tried it or have had bad experiences with it, for example in computer classes at school. That's a pity, because the first steps to learning can be very easy and even fun.
