    Best female programmer in india
    There is a gender gender gap in the technology field and especially in the field of programming. There are some female programmers in India which are working a lot in this field. Debjani Ghosh from Delhi is one such example. Presently, she is a President of NASSCOM. She is a strong advocate of gender diversity and equal representation in corporate India. Second one in the list is Geetha Kannan from Bengaluru. Currently, she is working as Managing director at Anitab.org India which is a not-for-profit that focuses on developing the careers of women in the field of technology. Ashni Dwarkadas from Mumbai is another such female programmer. She is a co-founder of Hackberry. Hackberry is basically a coding workshop for 5 to 15 year old children that teaches coding to them through various games and activities. Another female programmers is Deepa Madhavan from Chennai who is currently working as a Director of Enterprise Data Services in Paypal. She also champions initiatives like ‘Girls in Tech’ and ‘Unity’ a women’s affinity group at PayPal that helps women network, build leadership skills and find mentorship. Ashwini Asokan from Chennai is another such name. She is a founder and CEO at Mad Street Den which is an AI and computer vision company with teams in San Francisco and Chennai. She is focusing now on bringing AI out of the lab and into everyday life. Mad Street Den is one such firm where women employees comprise 58 per cent of the staff. Females should get inspired by such women and try out all available options and find what they love. They need to find where their passion lies and work on that. The day is not far away when women will have equality in the field of technology and programming.

    The number of female programmers globally is growing and has risen to a percentage that is much higher than before. In India specifically, awareness about gender bias in the coding world has dawned on women in recent years. The programming scene has changed a lot since the days of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. More women are working as programmers and designers than ever before. Because of this, women have a bigger presence in the industry than they did just ten or fifteen years ago.

    Our country has many brilliant women who have proved their genius by excelling in programming.

    Every cliché in the book is broken by the iconic image of scientists in gem-toned silk saris in their hair, celebrating the launch in 2014 of the Mars-Orbiter Mission. They were there, our concealed figures themselves, just no longer so hidden. STEM’s women recently expressed their presence, including India’s $167 million IT-BPM (Business Process Management Information Technology). The sector has 3,97 million direct employees and 34 percent of them women, up significantly from 28 percent in 2016. In the IT industry and, in particular, in coding, there is a gender gap. But the situation has improved significantly and many women coders have entered the scene.

    1. Reshma Saujani
    She feels the boldness gap is why women in STEM are under-represented. As a lawyer and activist, she was a graduate of Yale Law School. Saujani was the first Indian American woman in 2010 to attend the United States Congress. But her most successful effort began when she spotted the gender divide in computer classes on the campaign trail. “We can’t leave half of our population behind to properly innovate,” Saujani adds. This inspired them to set up a non-profit organization called Girls Who Code, which aims to empower women in technology. Today 88% of students have declared CS major/minor and will reach 50 000 girls in the United States by the end of 2018.

    2. Debjani Ghosh
    It took thirty years to nominate the first women president by NASSCOM, a lobby group representing India’s $167 billion in the IT-BPM industry. As the first woman-leading technology giant Intel India, MAIT, and NASSCOM, Ghosh advocates for gender diversity and equal representation in Indian corporations. Ghosh is a major promoter of gender diversity. “Gender diversity, not only a female-focused conversation, is vitally imperative to the success of any organization,” She explains. “The cultivation of technology abilities combined with soft skills gives women a harder focus over the machines as we go quickly to automation,” she added.

    3. Geetha Kannan
    Kannan has been with firms like Infosys and Wipro Systems for three decades. She is now the head of the AnitaB.org Indian chapter, a non-profit focused on boosting women’s professions in technology. “Many of our previous discussions have shown diversity and why you should hire women. It’s now: how can we hire, retain and create an inclusive environment for more women?’ Kannan says. Kannan says.

    4. Ashni Dwarkadas
    In 2017, Carnegie Mellon’s MBA co-founded Hackberry, which provides coding training for 5- to 15-year-olds through games and activities. “The coding includes analytical thinking, design, and business, connecting children to technology positively, creating and innovating.”

    5. Deepa Madhavan
    One of Madhavan’s first words about PayPal is “recharging,” a program that invites women back to work. She took a hiatus to raise her three children after working in Deloitte in San Francisco. “When I walk the same road, I know the fight,” she says, highlighting how these programs allow women to get back to work. According to her, “what the world will look like in the future” are industries tied to technology. Initiatives such as “Girls in Tech” and “Unity,” a PayPal affinity group for women that helps network women, builds leadership abilities, and finds mentor, are also champions.
