Resources ?‍?

Feminine Computer Science Poster – created and shared by JoCee

I have a difficult time finding feminine technology accessories. There will be 20,000 black, green, and blue laptop covers and only 5 pink or purple ones. I think the key to more women entering CS-related fields is to provide resources that they are drawn to, and marketed (even for free) towards them. So I created a digital decoration that is clearly feminine, and also clearly computer science-related (:

Computer Specs x Computer Scientists by TheHippieHacker – created and shared by Madi

The video is an intro to computer specs for helping those in the market of a new laptop. It has metrics and more relatable explanations of computer specs.
