'Hello Computer' is a story of a working-class girl who begins a life-long love affair with technology after seeing a computer for the first time in 1967.

Her journey takes us through exciting times and epic events, from the dawn of the internet to the dotcom boom, from punch cards to the raspberry pi and virtual worlds.

Linda shares her experiences of computing through real life stories where systems are designed to make a difference to people's lives.

Demonstrating that although technology changes constantly, fundamentally, people don't change that much.

Against a backdrop of unspoken bias the story captures the struggles faced by many young women, then and now.

It is positive, heart-warming and full of hope that women will become more influential within tech.

A story of ambition, passion and programming, inspirational for future generations of women and girls in STEM.
