Last week Bernadine Bröcker and Marta Olszewska were invited to join ‘It all starts with a spark’ an event organised by Microsoft to encourage women to be more involved in the tech world.

The evening talk was started by Andy McCartney and followed a day of workshop for nominated women. Ladies who previously had no experience in app developing have been coding away and building their own apps!

We explained what it is like to be an all-female team in largely male dominated field and why this particular field should actually be women friendly. The core of our team is a group of girls, but the web developer is a man working remotely to be able to stay home and look after his daughter.

We hope we gave some young ambitious ladies some food for thought. It was great to speak to the lucky nominees and get inspired with their energy and enthusiasm.
