Like many in the high tech field, Jean MacDonald's career started out with an academic bent as she worked on a Ph.D. in Russian history at Princeton University. Her experience with foreign language literature naturally led to work in the book publishing world, which in turn led to considerable web development work. And then, as many know her, her nine years with Smile Software. But one day, at WWDC, she noted the dearth of young women writing commercial software. The idea for App Camp for Girls was born and launched in 2013 in Portland, OR. Today, App Camp for Girls has been so successful, it's expanding into Canada and other countries. Listen in as Jean tells her fascinating story.
