I remember back in high school... the councilor gave me an application for a governor's school program. I remember looking at the application which 'encouraged girls and minorities' to apply.

Although I've never worked in the public sector, I've heard similar sentiments from devs who do. I'd just like to chime in and say it's not like this in the private sector. Maybe I've been lucky or maybe I've been choosy, but in thirty years of writing code for a living, I've always enjoyed working for my employers, who (since 2000) have been small early-stage successful companies staffed by intelligent (IMHO) management.

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein
Yeah I think that would really help me but the community college in the little town we live in hasn't offered anything like that yet, as far as I know. I get a little help from other photographers but most are real secretive about their processing.
Along with Antimatter and Dark Matter they've discovered the existence of Doesn't Matter which appears to have no effect on the universe whatsoever!
