An upgrade for Women in Tech

As someone who has been part of various WiT (Women in Tech) events, I’m absolutely delighted by the surge of effort to promote women in this field, and the progress so far has been phenomenal. Though being a software engineer, I’m cursed with always feeling like there’s room for improvement, and that’s the case even here with the WiT movement.
