Coding like a girl.

Taking a break from blogging while I rebuild my development machine. Meanwhile, enjoy an article by sailor mercury about femininity and programming. I liked this tip:

Assume people are as or more qualified than you.

If you’re at a conference and talking to a feminine presenting person, assume they are an expert in the field of the conference.

Before you are about to explain a paper condescendingly to someone in a dress, assume that they wrote it.

This is probably good advice when talking to anybody about anything.
