We were proud to host Pink Programming last Sunday in our office in Stockholm. 25 women of various ages, nationalities and levels of coding experience got together for a day of coding and networking. Pink Programming is a non-profit organization, aiming to create an environment where women feel encouraged and supported to discover the joy of programming, make new friends, and help each other become better developers.
Betsson Group’s own Biljana Anjelkovic gave an inspirational talk about her career trajectory - from being a mobile app developer on small-scale projects in Serbia to working as Technical Product Owner at Betsson. Biljana’s advice to the budding programmers was to; “Focus on the goal, not the programming tool, stay flexible and up-to-date with developments in your field. Remember that you can do anything you set your mind to”.
Aline from Brazil said: “It was so cool to see so many girls wanting to be part of an environment that has traditionally been dominated by men. Biljana's story about how she went for the thing she wanted to do was so inspiring. That's what I want to do!"
