Since launching Trendy Techie in May of last year, I have been fortunate enough to have formed relationships with many companies, from tech startups to fashion designers and everything in between. But this partnership is a special one for me, not only because it is with one of the most complete and praised enterprise suites out there, but because it is a company with a culture of inclusivity, generosity, and future-thinking. Announcing: Trendy Techie’s partnership with Syncfusion.
Syncfusion is the enterprise technology partner of choice for Windows development, delivering a broad range of software frameworks and tools. Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, Syncfusion has more than 10,000 customers, including large financial institutions, Fortune 100 companies, and global IT consultancies. It would be impossible for me to sum up in one blog post all the services Syncfusion provides, so starting next month I will be documenting my exploration of their tool suites, starting with Essential Studio for Windows Phone.
Syncfusion is my corporate partner for this year’s Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, a conference that brings together thousands of technologists from around the world, this year to Phoenix, Arizona. Syncfusion is a big supporter of women in tech, and has a large number of female developers among its ranks – 20% of Syncfusion devs are female! In a show of support, they have provided me with free licenses to their essential suite of tools – find me at Grace Hopper to get your free license!
Throughout the week I will be adding more information about Syncfusion to my Grace Hopper posts, so be sure to check back to learn more about the extensive scope of the license. In the meantime, let’s hear from Geetha, Jayapradha, and Sujatha, three of Syncfusion’s female developers:
“I like being an independent and self-sustaining person. Being a software engineer, it helps me to be who I am and I love the challenges it brings to me every day. It keeps me going, helps to thrive and enjoy at the same time and at the end of day, makes me to look forward the next day.”
– Geetha Rani
“I think my passion, creates something out of nothing and destroy something irreplaceable by god called developers”
– Jayapradha S
“I do Testing as I love defect free product. “
– Sujatha Babu
It’s inspiring to hear what drives real female developers, as we don’t often get to hear from the ones that aren’t in the media spotlight. And if you look at them again, you’ll notice that none of them look like the stereotypical programmer – that’s exactly what Trendy Techie is about. Too often girlcoders get asked why we are developers, or get told that we look “too pretty to code” (no, I’m not joking, yes, it’s stupid), and it’s time that society see what real female developers look like. That’s why I’m so excited and honored to be part of this year’s Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, with the support of Syncfusion.
