To this end, I've decided to make a documentary film about developers. I have several goals for the film, but the over-arching theme is to help people understand the role of code and coders in their daily lives.
I've been to a myriad of parties in my life and when asked, I often, sheepishly, say "I'm into computers". But that's not a sufficient answer. It's enough for many people to shrug it off and stop asking questions, but I think if most people got a sense of what we do, they'd find it interesting. That's where the idea for "Hello World: The Film" came from.
The goals of the film are pretty simple:
Explain to the layperson what we do and why we're so passionate about it.
Show the variety of people who do this job and that it's open to people from all backgrounds.
Talk about the history of software development and how we got to where we are today.
And to discuss the problem of inclusion in programming including the lack of women and people of color in our industry.
You can see a teaser for the film here:
And the Kickstarter video here too:
Lastly, if you feel excited about the project, and would like to help me make it, there are two ways to contribute:
