But of course. Experience MEN earn 7.000 to 25.000 p/a. Experienced women get BABIES and COOKING to deal with HUZZAR.
They get to drop their eyes prettily while MEN say "hey, now that I have SKILLZ that will earn me $12,000 a year, I can ask you to MARRY ME STRAIGHT OUT OF SCHOOL!"
That woman in the pic is probably either a secretary. He's probably impressing her with the columns of financial data generated by the COBOL program he just wrote.

The college I went to had a course in Basic programming before the actually had a computer on campus, back in the early 70's. When you signed up for the course, you got shipped all these boxes of pre-punched cards with every conceivable Basic statement on them, with many different variable names. You went through and picked the cards to create your program deck and mailed it off to the site with the computer. A week later, you got your deck back along with a printout of your results, or a memory dump if it failed. You made corrections and mailed it off again until you got it right. The wonderful world of computing!
I remember those days! I took programming in the early 70's. We'd keypunch our programs onto cards, leave them in a little mailbox, and the next morning the Magical Computer Fairies would leave a printout showing how our program performed. We timeshared with a larger university's computer.
My mom worked at a bank in the very early 70's, and they did a lot of keypunching in her department. When she and my dad were married, one of her co-workers brought a big box of keypunch chips and tossed it into the car onto them along with all the people throwing rice. They were still finding keypunch chips in the mid-80's when they sold the car!

I don't remember keypunch, but I do remember doing really basic stuff on a Commodore Vic-20. I never could get the program that made the top row of keys into a music keyboard to work.
Back then, computer programming was done with pencil and paper. You'd write out the algorithm, then transcribe it into code (typically COBOL or FORTRAN). Then, once you had your code down, you'd check it, recheck it, and check it again, by pretending to be the computer and executing it line by line.

This process was long and arduous. Once you were sure your program worked and was correct, you would hand it to a keypunch operator whose job was to keypunch the program onto punch cards. You would also hand the operator any test data you had to be key punched as well.

The card decks would then be taken to the computer room and submitted for the night's jobs. You would find out a few hours later if your program worked or not. If it didn't, you'd have to find the bugs, fix them, get the appropriate lines repunched, and try again.

Needless to say, programming is a little easier these days. We have it easy. :)
I don't know why, I remember it, but I recall, back in the early 70s, my parents talking about a friend of theirs who was spending $100/month in rent on his fancy apartment. Apparently it was a pretty high class bachelor pad or something.
I'm a woman taking comp programming right now!
That's great..lol
