Eva Snyder ’17 had never done computer coding before arriving at Mount Holyoke last fall. But—only one year later—she has already created her own computer-aided product, presented at computer science gatherings, and was chosen as one of 20 women for a “coding camp” started by Twitter’s cofounder that aims to train and inspire the next generation of female engineers. After just one semester of computer science classes, she created a prototype of Music Touch, a tool to help people learn to read music and sight-sing.
