Jean Rails Girls Summer of Code: Welcoming Nicole and Laura

Two women. One summer. Big-time coding dreams.“  Nicole and Laura are spending this summer as interns at SoundCloud, mentored by SoundCloud engineers. They’re here as participants in Rails Girls Summer of Code: an initiative focused on bringing more women into the world of open source.

We took a few minutes to chat about what inspired them to get into programming, what they’re working on with their SoundCloud mentors, and how being part of Rails Girls is helping them to gain access to new career opportunities.

We’re glad to say that Laura and Nicole will be here all summer.  Follow their coding adventures on their Tumblr, on their daily log, and on Twitter. We can’t wait to see what they build!

    I think this is a great idea. But on the other side, i fear security issues, or compatability issues. It’s not likely if you have no experience at all, that you are going to commit valuable code to a project.
