Girls Rule the World, Why Not Tech?

Ladies and gentlemen, it's time to face facts - girls rule the world. From politics to the arts, women are making waves and breaking down barriers in all walks of life. But there's one area where they're still underrepresented, and it's a crucial one: technology.

In a world that's increasingly powered by technology, it's more important than ever that women are involved in shaping its development and future. But why aren't more girls entering tech? Well, there could be a number of reasons.

For starters, there's a persistent stereotype that technology is a "man's world". This stereotype leads to a self-fulfilling prophecy, where girls are discouraged from pursuing careers in tech before they even start. But the fact is, girls have just as much ability as boys when it comes to technology. In fact, studies have shown that girls often perform better than boys in subjects like mathematics, which is a key foundation for a successful career in tech.

Another barrier is a lack of role models. When girls don't see other women working in tech, they might not consider it as a viable option for themselves. But this is changing. Every day, there are more and more women who are breaking into the tech industry and making a name for themselves. We just need to make sure that these role models are visible and accessible to the next generation of girls.

Finally, there's a lack of resources and support. Many girls simply don't have access to the same tools and opportunities as boys, and they might not have anyone in their lives who can help guide them into tech. But this is something that we can change. By providing more resources and support to girls, we can help level the playing field and give them the chance to succeed in tech.

So, why not tech? Well, the truth is, there's no reason why not. Girls have the talent, the drive, and the passion to succeed in technology. All they need is a little bit of support and encouragement to get started.

So, let's do our part. Let's help girls take over the tech world, one line of code at a time.

An Animated Guide to Node.js Event Loop

Node.js doesn’t stop from running other operations because of Libuv, a C++ library responsible for the event loop and asynchronously handling tasks such as network requests, DNS resolution, file system operations, data encryption, etc.

What happens under the hood when Node.js works on tasks such as database queries? We will explore it by following this piece of code step by step.
