Women In Tech has been one of my favorite hashtags on social media, not only because of its current popularity, the inspiration and the funny jokes that are being thrown around about it but because women are getting into the technology space- an industry that has been dominated by men for decades.

There aren’t many women who are doing this important while teaching others about the job and what to expect. Here are three women that are in tech and teaching others about the industry with YouTube channels.

Naledi Mgedezi

Naledi is a software engineer who uses her Youtube channel to educate others about the information technology industry. She teaches her followers everything IT-related from coding to mobile and web app development, creating websites, programming, etc. She also connects with her audience by sharing challenges she’s encountered in the industry, her stories, experiences, and what one does to survive in the male-dominated industry. She is a truly South African woman in tech.
