To punch through in the bro culture computer science

Female Techtalk is the podcast of two computer scientists, Sara Nill and Elisabeth Steffen. The two are – current and former – students of ECDF professor Helena Mihaljević. They think that "far too few women still dare to take the step into the world of computer science." With their podcast, they want to change that "in an entertaining, accessible and at the same time competent way."

In the now almost 30 episodes, they talk about topics such as abstraction and mathematics, programming courses for children, concepts of computer science, computer networks, mentalload, the Java programming language, and what it means to fight your way through a "bro culture".
