5 Reasons Why I Started Making Products for Programmers

Who doesn’t love getting the merch from your favorite band or comic book series?

Wearing that clothing and nerdy t shirts makes you feel part of the club.

When I first started programming and working in tech I loved getting involved with the community.

I sought out other females working in tech as role models (read about them here) and started creating cartoons.

I even found a few brands selling nerdy t shirts specifically targeting products for programmers.

But I was often disappointed with what I found.

That’s why I started to make my own products for programmers and designing my own nerdy t shirts.

Here’s why I felt the need to take action:

  1. Misrepresentation – The current options do not represent everyone and give the impression of a homogenous group. This homogeneity is not the case!
  2. Inclusion – Being included in the community of nerds, geeks and incredible people in tech is awesome. I want everyone in the community to feel included.
  3. Opportunity – I saw that there was a gap in the market to make something for other people like me who want something a bit different.
  4. Community – I love being part of the community and want to give back
  5. Passion – I just love making these products for programmers. I am passionate about these items and seeing them make people happy.

I’m so excited to share my new range with you. You can read more about the background and brand story here.

I hope you love my nerdy t shirts as much as I loved creating them

Within the next week you will be able to purchase from my new range.

I cannot wait to get your feedback on these new designs!

    It’s cool to learn about AI technology. I like how you said that self driving cars, virtual assistants, and other cool things are just over the horizon. Artificial intelligence tech is definitely really cool!

      It is really cool! I think it has incredible potential and that’s why I’m so passionate about sharing about it. My biggest fear is that the technology itself gets exploited as a political weapon by people that don’t understand it and so with this blog I want to help people understand what the tech does and how they can have a voice in developing it 😊
