Guest: Reshma Saujani, Founder, Girls Who Code, Author, “Girls Who Code”; Stacia Deutsch, Author, “Girls Who Code: The Friendship Code” Every site you browse on the web, software program you use on your computer or app on your phone was created by a coder. And that coder was probably a guy. He probably started coding as a kid, too. Why don’t more girls gravitate to coding? Reshma Saujani has a theory and a new book that aims to address it called “Girls Who Code” – the same name as Saujani’s organization which teaches coding to girls all across the country. The book is an illustrated introduction to coding with a cast of girls who are also featured in a companion series of novels for young readers.
