Where have the women of tech history gone?

Ada Lovelace, Hedy Lamarr, the ‘ENIAC Girls,’ Grace Hopper, Joan Clarke… Stemming from the role of a calculator, the profession of a developer was initially considered a women’s job, while hardware design was seen as a man’s job. However, who are these women who have shaped the world of tech?Why don’t we hear more about them?

With Laura Durieux, you’ll attempt to set the record straight bit by bit and provide role models in tech that you’ve always needed.

Laura Durieux

Full-stack Developer, Business Inside Software & Twitch streamer

My name is Laura Durieux, and I have been a developer for 6 years now. Graduated in Web Design and Development, I work with my cousin at Inside Software, where we develop administrative tools, websites, and also serve as consultants in the medical field.

Twice awarded gold at WorldSkills Belgium in the Web Technologies category, I also won a Medal of Excellence at EuroSkills in 2021, representing Belgium. During my studies, my internship took place in Japan, in Tokyo, at a company called UltraSuperNew, where I worked for 3 and a half months. It went so well that I was called back to develop the website for Tabasco Japan (2020).

Since last year, I ventured into Twitch and started streaming coding sessions. I wanted to add value to my learning. Since then, I have become the host of the live show “On est pas des iencli” on RTBF, the Belgian national media. It’s a monthly YouTube live where we discuss the latest developments in the tech industry, held every last Saturday of the month. Additionally, I have started my speaking career for a year now, mainly in France. It would warm my heart to have the opportunity to speak in my own country.
