Forbes has included Finnish children’s book author Linda Liukas on its list of Europe’s Top 50 Women in Tech.
I had a pleasure of meeting Linda when I planned the agenda of Fujitsu World Tour Helsinki 2015. She gave a very inspiring Keynote speech at the event. Our customers simply loved her natural style - no wonder she scored the best among all speakers.
Liukas is known for her Hello Ruby book series that explores contemporary technologies and teaches programming to children. The enterprise has grown into a whole platform of books, games, exercises and apps.
“In my work, I defend young girls’ and boys’ right to understand an increasingly technological world, but the Forbes list shows that adults too need unconventional role models in the technology industry,” Liukas comments.
