The Recurse Center

The whole newsletter (https://www.recurse.com/still-computing) looks like something this forum’s readers might enjoy, but here is the one that I found first:

“# Issue 4: Into the Mainframe

This week, we have two interviews with women who worked as programmers in the 1960s, with insightful and humorous reflections on software, their careers, the ways computing has changed over the years, and the ways it hasn’t. Read on to learn why programmers only wrote ten lines of code per day and never touched a keyboard, and why you should remember to be grateful for the existence of libraries.”
