When did your career end?

I retired at the end of July, 2016. I have worked with many women, but not with many women that were software or database developers. On further reflection, I remember several women developers that I worked with in the 1980's and 90's at one particular company (that is no longer in existence), and a few others, even earlier, that I knew but never had an opportunity to work with. I can’t recall working with any since then — oh wait, there was one later that transitioned from admin work to development.

On even further reflection I do recall working with one Black male software developer, and several Asian male developers, while at a large corporation. I don’t normally categorize my coworkers by race, and it was difficult to recall them that way. There were probably others that I missed.
