Category: Hey Girlfriend!

After two years of seemingly non-stop interviews every two weeks during 2014 and 2015, my interview series 2 minutes and 40 seconds took a hiatus in 2016. I decided to put it down indefinitely, and introduced Hey Girlfriend!, an interview series which relates to a movement that is very close to my heart: that of women working in tech – in information technology, with computers, with computer science, or with science in general. Anything that pertains to a woman basically going against the stereotype and doing what society believes to be a “man’s job” (newsflash: it’s not a man’s job).

I have been working as a web developer in the industry for about six years. It’s no new news that I love what I do, because I talk and write about it all the time and have great passion for the things I build and develop and code. I spoke about my journey becoming a web developer, and how I never thought it was unusual that a girl was working with computers until someone pointed it out. To this day, I have noticed a shortage of women working in tech, and I have often been the only girl in my company or team.

I love to encourage more women out there to learn to code or get involved in programming and with computers, and Hey Girlfriend! aims to do just that. I will be interviewing women from all around the globe, of varying ages, who work in tech.

Interviews are posted on the fourth Tuesday of every month.

I talk to my long-time friend Holly about her career in web development following studying a geography degree, her hobbies and interests outside of web development, and how she has grown through blogging.
