Dear Taylor Swift,

Your name is one of the most popular singer songwriter names in the software development community. Just look at this textbook (even though it’s outdated!)…

Have you ever thought about learning how to code? Well, let me just say you have SO MANY software developer fans! Just check these projects out.

So Taylor — you are clearly beloved by the Computer Science community. If any of these things sounded cool, stop by the biggest women in tech conference in the world (the Grace Hopper Conference *GHC!) in Houston in the days leading up to your concert! This year GHC 18 is sold out and there are 18,000 attendants ❤

Let us introduce you to the enchanted world of programming. Sparks will fly!

If you have created built something related to Taylor Swift and/or the Reputation Tour and want it included on this post, email me at blondiebytes@gmail.com.

Some ideas to get you started:

  • A Taylor Swift Quiz in Python using the Command Line

Let the games begin.
