Change the game: a proposal for equality
For some reason, the world of programming usually has a gender mismatch that many of us worry about. We do not believe that it is a matter of capacity, and it seems that Google thinks so, so they created «Change the game», an initiative that supports young women who want to start in the world of programming.
All these games have been born thanks to the girlsmakegames initiative, a place for girls who want to start creating video games. They carry out initiation camps to the world of video game development, but they also have a section on their website, where any teenager can start in the world of video game development.
