@angrynoah @jeresig I don't believe either of us said optimizing diversity was easy, magical, or free- just that it's worth doing@reconbot @allspaw @jeresig I'd argue that diversity *is* hard, but worth it. Happy to hear you're working on it, though :).@angrynoah @jeresig nor is pretending you have no influence on whether your team attracts diverse applicants. You do: outreach. (2/2)@angrynoah @jeresig relying on inbound resumes when you don't have a diverse audience of applicants is not good enough (1/2)Mentors, teachers, friends: Encourage HS women interested in computing to apply for the @NCWITAIC Award http://t.co/LPc4nC7lBF
Retweeted by Vanessa Hurst
@jeresig Agree, but I'd say we need to put actually *more* effort into diversity than code performance. Also: say "we" - not "devs" @DBNess
Retweeted by Vanessa HurstI wish devs put as much time into optimizing diversity as they put into optimizing code performance.
