A month back we have posted an article about 5 most famous female computer programmers named as:-
- Sara Haider
- Jade Raymond
- Amanda Wixted
- Tracy Chou
- Corrine Yu
We have already described about Jade Raymond, Corrine Yu and the very first female programmer Ada Lovelace separately. Today I am describing about Sara Haider.
Sara Haider is one of the very few women in the world who codes! Sara is presently working with Twitter as a staff software engineer, working for ‘Vine for android’ project. Previously with her engagement with Twitter for over a period of four years, she is responsible for Twitter on Android. Sara started her career with Sonic Solutions as an intern as soon as she started her college in 2004. The following year she worked as a Java Engineering intern in Teradata. Sara as she claims herself to be the citizen of the world. She is half Pakistani and half Filipina with a Canadian nationality and resides in San Francisco. Adding to the mix, she was born in beautiful country of Cocody. She says “I don’t really think of any place as home – I love to travel, and the world is my home.” She as a child was always interested in video games and the internet, and so did her fate. This love pulled her towards computer science which eventually led towards a bachelor degree in Software Engineering and Cognitive Science from the University of Waterloo. Also, during her last year of Bachelors, Sara worked with the much famous company Google as a Software engineering intern for a period of one year. She also spent a considerable amount of time working for the PA Consulting group as a Consultant Analyst, in the following year.
Sara considers herself to be blessed in working at the Twitter, as she is actually pursuing something which is really passionate about, the love for computers. She along with this, works for ‘Girls who Code’, a Non Profit Organisation as an Advisor and hopes to inspire young girls to forge their own paths and to stay in technology field. She also mentors at the Extreme Startups in cities like Silicon Valley, Toronto and New York.
Sara on being asked upon where she would be, if not Twitter, answers, “If I wasn’t working at Twitter, I’d like to be working at an independent video game company, or perhaps start my own. Video games have always been my true passion. One day, I will get there 🙂”
Sara is indeed making big waves and hopefully will continue to do so. Share your views about this beautiful programmer.
