Programming languages and gender
The comparison of difference and similarities in programming language usage according to programmer gender is discussed. The study is based on a voluntary Web-based suvery on the salaries and languages or information technology workers conducted by dice.com, an online placement company. It has been suggested that women have greater representation maintaining Cobol legacy systems rather than engineering new systems using languages such as Java or C++. The overall slight percentage difference favoring males for SQL and Oracle may indicates that woman focus more on reporting functions for existing systems rather than engineering new ones.
