So your boy likes Python and your girl doesn’t.

I would love to see a study into gender preferences for different development styles and tools. Are women more likely to pair-program well? Are some languages more likely to be popular among different genders? Is your daughter simply predisposed to becoming a CUDA hacker? Maybe she’d find the full QT suite more to her liking.

There are so many tools out there and some of them are criminally underused. It would be a great way to kick-start a software engineering discussion if we found this kind of correlation.
