    I’d be interested to know what kind of bug she found in a C program without even knowing the language.

    Nonetheless, I think it’s nice that I didn’t even realize the author was a woman until a while into the article (I missed the name). I hope that one day anyone can have a bug-finding experience as the author did, and that their gender, their age, or their nationality will not factor into the utility or importance of the fix any more than their favorite color.

      I suspect she found a bug in the course of using the software, but (because she’d not seen the language), didn’t necessarily know what code caused it. This in the same sense that a QA person might find a bug in some Javascript, but discover and report it via the UI.

        That makes sense. Guess I was thrown off by the specific naming of C as the language of the program. Thanks for the explanation.
