Everybody knows that women can't program. Their brains are not capable of abstract/logical reasoning. On the other hand our culture is constantly telling women that they can program and the results are very absurd and amusing.


This presentation will open a discussion about how we are introducing new developers to programming. Most textbooks, tutorials, and trainings begin by introducing new developers to mathematics lessons within the language. Many courses on programming require math skills as prerequisites. However, math prowess is not usually an indicator of one's potential programming abilities. Those people who have been told from a young age that they aren't good at math or generally doubt their math skills often feel excluded from the world of programming unnecessarily.

Absolutely insane seeing these postmodernist ideas like pretending math doesn't matter so that people who can't think aren't scared. You know what the real solution is to not knowing how something? learning it.

This principle can be demonstrated visually.

This is what happens when a women tries to put her mind up against a programming problem:

Bhumika Goyal, age 22, of India, has had more than 340 patches accepted into the Linux kernel – an accomplishment that contributed in no small part to her receiving one of two Linux Kernel Guru scholarships from The Linux Foundation.

Goyal served as an Outreachy intern earlier this year, focused on the Linux kernel, where she worked on securing the kernel from surface attacks by making the kernel structures read-only. Since her internship, Goyal has continued this work with the support of The Linux Foundation’s Core Infrastructure Initiative.

“Having contributed to the kernel for a year now, I have developed a keen interest in learning the internals of the kernel,’’ Goyal explained in her scholarship application. “This training will definitely help me to develop my skills so that I can contribute to the kernel community more effectively.” Her goal is to become a full-time kernel engineer after completing this current project.

- Ashley Williams

Announcement: Ashley Williams joining the Core Team and taking lead of the Community Team

I’m pleased to announce that Ashley Williams441 (@ag_dubs) will be taking over my role as the Community Team lead and my position on the Core Team since I will be soon going on paternity leave.

Ashley has already had a large impact on the Community Team. She has extensive experience in community education and organization. She joined the community team in July 201718, after spending the previous year reenergizing the RustBridge27 program; creating a new website and curriculum and running multiple events in multiple countries over the course of 12 months. Much of her skill in this area comes from her experience founding and leading the Nodetogether18 program for the Node.js community in 2016.

Outside of Rust, Ashley is also part of the Node.js and npm leadership. She sits on the Node.js Board of Directors17 and is on the Node.js Community Committee7. She currently is employed as a services engineer at npm3, the package manager for javascript. Notably, she successfully encouraged the company to begin using Rust, and spends at least part of her regular week writing production Rust. (To find out more- check out her talk from RustFest Kyiv 201739!)

As Community Team lead, Ashley hopes to grow the Community Team leadership structure and scope through better project management and tracking. As part of this, she intends to improve communication, transparency, and discovery both within the team and Rust leadership, as well as with the broader Rust community.

As a member of the Core Team, she will be focusing on bridging the JavaScript and Rust communities, including technical work to better integrate Rust with WebAssembly and npm, and improving Cargo by incorporating best practices from npm.

I’m thrilled to have her take over, and can’t wait to help her achieve her vision when I’m back from my leave.

Meanwhile on reddit:

Alright. I'm only going to say this once.

It is not acceptable to discuss a community member's suitability for leadership here. Ashley has already received a bunch of harassment from the Node community on this, and let's not repeat that here.

If you have concerns, email the mods at

I'm deleting any comments that talk about the node thing.

Edit: To address the common concern that was brought up: The mod team does not consider hyperbolic comments she made years ago, in an informal venue, in frustration, to be a problem. (And some of us have discussed this with her directly as well).

Edit2: Yes, this is heavy handed. This particular person has already experienced an immense amount of harassment and public shaming and trolling over this same issue elsewhere, and I'm nipping it in the bud before it becomes a problem here. The thread was already problematic when I got to it. In general publicly negatively discussing someone's behavior is a problem anyway, but in this specific case it is something that I'm being a bit more heavy handed on.

Here's the deal: Rust is a project, not a foundation or anything. The teams are working groups. Like, literally, some people are hired on those posts.

I can only speak in my role as a community team member. Ashley is leader of the community team. This is not a public-facing task. The people Ashley leads and have chosen her are listed here: Same goes for core. These are strictly the only people that have a say in that decision. We weighted that. We want Ashley.

In the community team, we criticise our leadership, put we are also sovereign in our decisions. Indeed, that has happened regularly. This is normal. Ashley has, first and foremost managed to make great changes for our team in the recent weeks. This position is because of good work.

I know some people feel entitled to say anything about anyone at any place at any time. This is not the case. An announcement is not the proper venue for upfront criticism or grinding old axes. Rules of general courtesy apply. This has nothing to do with censorship. You are free too leave those at any other place on the internet.

Here is what they are censoring:

Why do women only go for assholes? I'm a nice guy but women don't want to give me a chance. I'm just going to act like a total douche toward women if that'll get me a girlfriend. I'm done respecting women. Congratulations ladies, you just lost a great guy. Don't come to me asking where all the good men have gone, you've killed them.
