Coding for women: could I learn to program in a day?

Only 17% of the UK’s tech jobs are held by women, and in engineering, it’s even worse: just 8%, according to the ONS. Yet girls drop out of computer science well before they leave school. One study found that 83% of girls come out of school having learned no computer coding (compared with 67% of boys). Just 7% of all computer studies A-levels are taken by girls.
