Now this is a question that not only bugs me but all the other male programmers I know in South-Africa (I do'nt know how it is in other countries): How many female programmers are there? And how and at what age do they get interested in programming? I have heard that most female programmers are asian and that there are'nt that much in the US but I dont know if this is true. I would like to know this because it would be nice to have someone who won't get bored if I start talking alorithims and procedure and could actualy understand what I am saying. So if you are/are intersted in programming or you know a female programmer let me know in this post.
