Isolated at Harvard to starring at Pixar: women face tough road into tech

CLIENT: TUGG
OUTLET: AUSTRALIAN FINANCIAL REVIEW

Showing how computer code can be a paintbrush of sorts for all kinds of creative endeavours is just one way a new documentary is hoping to inspire young women to take up computer science. "The combination of art and tech is my favourite thing in the world," says Danielle Feinberg, director of photography at Pixar and star of the new documentary CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap, a look at the lopsided nature of the tech industry and the increasing need for computer science graduates, particularly women. CODE will be released nationally in cinemas via TUGG.com.au, from April 6.
