Best Female Tech Authors (part 2)

Last week I published a blog about female (tech) authors, this week it’s time for part 2! A small reminder why  I started these series:

A while back I asked my followers on twitter if they knew some great female tech authors. Someone answered my question with “Are there any?”.  And that was exactly my point.  So together with one of my closest friends (thank you, you know who you are ;-)) I made a list of female IT authors.  

Every time I’ll share five authors on my list (in alphabetical order). I think this week’s list is amazing!
