Women Are Better Coders Than Men: CPSU

Researchers in California Polytechnic State University (CPSU) have published a paper which shows that women? tend to be better computer coder than men. That being said, women’s work suspiciously declines if their gender is revealed. The paper is authored by 6 students from CPSU and has been published online but not peer-reviewed. They analysed of the behaviour of over a million users of Github, which is a code-sharing website where users can post code and get feedback.

They found that women who assisted in projects on Github had a higher acceptance (pull requests) rate than those from men. However, if they revealed their gender? on their profile their pull requests dropped 9.3% bring it below that of men. This proved that “although women on Github may be more competent overall, bias against them exists nonetheless.” Google has 18% of its global tech staff as women, while Facebook has 16%.
