TBT- How Webrings, Blinkies, & Cliques Shaped Female Coders of Today
Dec. 7, 2017
Think back to the early 2000's, when our biggest concerns were who was going to fill that last spot in our Myspace top 8, whether we wanted music to automatically play when someone clicked our profile page, and who was going to feed our "cybunny" when we had to do our homework.
Little did we know, all that time we spent perfecting our profile pages was time actually spent learning to code. We started with webrings and table based layouts, found our own domains (that didn't require using our parent's credit cards) and joined communities with other teenage girls like ourselves who were happy to make custom GIF's in turn for some coding advice.
While the days of Neopets, Myspace, and Xanga may be over, there are still some really cool resources for our girls to learn similar coding practices but with a 2017 twist. Check out these cool Jewelbots, Goldie Blox toys, or local Girls Who Code program (better yet, start your own)!
