Female Tech Authors You Should Know (part 7)
It’s been a month since my last post on Female Tech Authors, time for post number 7! Every time, I’ll share inspiring authors with you (in alphabetical order). And…this will be my last post, cause I made it to the end of my list! But, of course I know I probably forgot a bunch of people, so I’ll keep updating! And yes, there will be a summary with everyone listed :-)
Curious why I started these posts? Have a look at Part 1!
Enjoy reading :-)
The first Tech company I worked for highly recommend me to read Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby by Sandi Metz. And now I recommend it to you, it’s definitely one of my favourites. Besides that Sandi is a cyclist, programmer, public speaker and blogger.

Latest book: Smashing Book 5: Real-Life Responsive Web Design
