Mia on her journey on how she became a Software Engineer in her 30s.
She talks about being a developer and how she got started
When I started my career as a software developer in 2004, I was lucky to have a woman developer as a mentor. After my introduction to the industry, it took me seven years to have the opportunity to work with another woman developer.
Some women can go through years in the tech industry and not even notice that they are one of the few. However, for some the journey can feel lonely and be full of obstacles. That is why I am creating a map of Women in Tech (WIT) communities so that we can find and support each other.
