brogrammer

a.k.a. brogramming, bros who program, bromance, bro speak

Based on "bros" who "program" it is a nickname for male programmers. In the world of high-tech start-ups, it generally refers to dudes in the industry. Originally from the movie term "bromance" in which two or more guys have an endearing relationship, the tech world is dominated by brogrammers.

Historical perspective: The "brogramming" meme was coined in June, 2011 with some choice posts on Quora and a Brogramming Group on Facebook. It was taken to new heights when writer Miles Lothe translated the Facebook Terms of Service into "bro speak."

As of 2017, women still only make up one third of Silicon Valley's tech employees and receive just 7 percent of start-up investor money. However, according to Heather Cabot and Samantah Walravens, the number of companies with female founders more than quadrupled from 2009 to 2014. Go grrlz!
