“Tarah Wheeler Van Vlack, author of Women in Tech, wants to stop women from leaving tech jobs mid-career.... [Her] book offers career advice to women who are considering getting into tech, or those already in it who want to take their career to the next level.

“[Women in Tech] has practical advice and personal stories from a variety of voices, and it covers every stage of a tech career, from applying for your first job to starting your first company. The book is lively and entertaining, and it’s a vital read for any woman, non-binary, or transgender person working in technology. But even if you don’t know the difference between C++ and C#, if you interact with technology-focused companies at all (or really, if you’re navigating any traditionally straight-white-cis-male-dominated field), you can learn a whole lot from this book.”
