  1. Thanks for the list. I’ve noticed only 4 developers who have identified as female on your list. Do you have a more comprehensive list that includes more female developers? I’m starting out in this business and I’ve found looking up to female role models to be more encouraging and motivating. Thanks!

    1. Hi Belma, I don’t at present but it’s certainly a good point. I will look to publish something in the future for this purpose!
