Why do I want to become a computer programmer?

So true.

Everybody I used to know who worked in technology seems to have been out of work for a half decade or more.

Meanwhile, back in Washington DC, the backers of the Green Card movement say that we are the reason we can’t find work.


This kind of smart Singaporean reform could help reverse the much decried-trend of fewer American women being employed as coders. My wife’s friend A made a lot of money as a programmer for 20 years, although the work environment kept getting more hostile as her employer used H-1B visas to bring in more sexist Pakistani men. Finally she got laid off and it took her half a decade to find a new job.

Young American women look at these kind of stories they hear from their aunts and ask themselves: “Why do I want to become a computer programmer?”

Of course, you can’t publicly mention H-1B in explaining the decline in the number of American women going into coding over the last several decades. You have blame “brogrammers” like Haven Monahan.
