I usually don't even look at who the author is, what's his/her gender and how he/she looks like. What meaning does it have in the world of coding? You either write or don't.
It actually has a lot of meaning. As a girl, I would never had started to code if I hadn't seem other girls coding and sharing their code journeys because I would be insecure and thinking it was only for men. And this is just my example.
Well, I guess whatever helps to overcome personal issues must be a good thing.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
