One in Forty Five Isn't Good Enough

Paul Gries, Arnold Rosenbloom, and I spoke to the Toronto Java Users’ Group meeting this past Tuesday about Java as a teaching language. It was fun, and the questions and comments from the audience gave me lots to think about — as did the fact that of the 45 people there, only one was female. That, and this, and hearing about schools with a 60:1 male/female ratio, makes me feel weary. (For the record, the ratio in my project course stands at 3:1.)
