Punchgirls is formed by Mayn Ektvedt Kjær and Cecilia Rivero, both living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We found each other through a tweet just days before the registration for the Rails Girls Summer of Code closed, and now we’re one of the lucky teams chosen to participate in the program! We came up with the name for our team after reading this article about female programmers in the old days.
We’re lucky enough to have massive support in our local community! In addition to our three awesome coaches @soveran, @djanowski and @inkel we have been contacted by lots of local developers excited about the project and offering their help.
Our summer of code started officially on July 19th and we have three months to work full time on our application! 🙂
