Niniane Wang - Design of Computer Programs

  • 0:00 - 0:05
    I studied computer science at Caltech, and then I worked at Microsoft.
  • 0:05 - 0:09
    Then I went to Google. At Google I worked on Desktop and Gmail.
  • 0:09 - 0:16
    I started Lively, and then after Google I started Sunfire, which is a coworking space.
  • 0:16 - 0:20
    Then I can fell in love with Minted. Minted is a startup.
  • 0:20 - 0:23
    We crowdsource graphic design and art from a community all over the world.
  • 0:23 - 0:26
    Then other people can customize and purchase that.
  • 0:26 - 0:31
    I actually started programming BASIC when I was five, but I didn't actually know what I was doing
  • 0:31 - 0:35
    My parents bought this Radio Shack gaming device,
  • 0:35 - 0:39
    because it was cheaper than other devices, and then there was a BASIC emulator.
  • 0:39 - 0:43
    I would write programs. It came with a book of programs.
  • 0:43 - 0:46
    We actually did not buy a memory cartridge, so I would retype every program
  • 0:46 - 0:49
    every time I wanted to enter it.
  • 0:49 - 0:52
    Then eventually I would start modifying it a little bit.
  • 0:52 - 0:56
    Some people start later but are very addicted and spend lots of time thinking about i
  • 0:56 - 0:58
    or playing with programs.
  • 0:58 - 1:02
    Then if you start later but spend more time it's the same.
  • 1:02 - 1:11
    As a woman, you understand the psychology of a very powerful consumer in the market,
  • 1:11 - 1:14
    but who is underrepresented in the people creating products,
  • 1:14 - 1:16
    which is a very powerful position.
  • 1:16 - 1:20
    For example, at Minted our demographic is women,
  • 1:20 - 1:24
    and that means that we are serving this very under-served market
  • 1:24 - 1:28
    that has a lot of spending power.
  • 1:28 - 1:31
    More money is spent by female consumers than by male consumers.
  • 1:31 - 1:34
    We primarily look for people who are strong programmers,
  • 1:34 - 1:39
    so people who like to build consumer websites and preferably who have done that before
  • 1:39 - 1:46
    whether it's for other companies, for classroom projects, or for open source or personal project,
  • 1:46 - 1:49
    people who have worked with object-oriented programming.
  • 1:49 - 1:53
    We happen to use Python, and then on the front end we use JavaScript and jQuery.
  • 1:53 - 1:56
    But anybody who has worked with either object-oriented programming
  • 1:56 - 2:00
    or who has built consumer websites would be great.
