On the Coding Path


Breakthroughs happen everywhere all the time. We set out to find inspiration from groundbreakers who’ve cracked the uncrackable, coding pioneers like you—and like us—with (sometimes tall) tales to tell about the changing trends in development.

Real Life in Code
Applying coding logic is second nature, particularly when it comes to cooking up a storm in the kitchen (Apple Pi, anyone?). But how do some of our greatest minds see the world and the trajectory tech is taking? Catch the conversations here.
Born to Code
The will to code doesn’t discriminate. So, where are all the women coders? All around us, that’s where. Check out tips from some top women developers on how to bypass lingering gender bias to advance your coding career.
