"In software" what about Lara Croft? Though I think the girl from the Final Fantasy movie was more attractive. Certainly these girls exist "in software" only, though there are a few "real life" Lara Crofts running around... In addition to the obvious, there are the women they used to model Lara's features.

Have you seen Stevie "Killcreek" Case? Not a programmer, but she plays video games and posed for Playboy.

I'm asking for the hottest woman who work in the software/programming field? Excluding the sales/marketing/support worker of course.

Someone with the last name of Lovelace. I think she was in a film.

Or am I confused?

Looking at the cover of some computer magazines (such as http://www.pcformat.co.uk/ ) computing attracts as many attractive females as photography. 

The only difference is they tend to wear more clothes.

So /that's/ why I didn't notice them...

Wow!

Kiki Stockhammer: first became renowned as Director of Marketing at NewTek, later as VP and CTE at Play.

If you've ever used an Amiga, Video Toaster, Snappy, or Trinity, then you'll know who she is.

"Grace Hopper?"

Ahh yes, nothing quite like the "early-morning-coffee-coming-out-your-nose" feeling.

OMG I see what you mean. Space Hopper is a "hotter chick".

Ah, but who's the hottest babe on *this* board?

Please keep in mind the requirement that the babe must actually be female.

Asia Carrera wins hands down; or should that be "Legs Wide"?

Please realize that Stevie Case and John Romero broke up.  He got a new 19 year old girlfriend from Romania.

So I suppose that means, if you like fake boobs, Killcreek is now available.

Asia's kind of homely if you check out her pics where she's not all done up. Eve looks like an old housefrau who serves beer in a munich beer garden, but with smaller tits. Kim Polese looks like an extra in an 80s B movie. Perhaps she could stunt double for Kim Cattral? Get some standards, guys.

Part of me is shocked at the lowering of standards.
I mean 'checking out a software babe', what next make lewd comments at everygirl who walks by, posting links to wet tshirts contest.

Last time I checked I enjoyed talking here with intelligent people at the top of their fields.
Not guys sporting mullets, driving monaros and yelling "show us your tits" at every sheila who walked past.

Aussie Chick,

I think the saying goes, "Boys will be boys"...

You could always start your own thread for the ladies about software babes who are dudes (or dudettes).  This way no one feels discriminated against....

Please note, I don’t feel discriminated against in the slightest. I would have the same opinion if we a bunch of chicks started a forum for the ‘hottest dude’.

Excepting that I have never seen a chick with a mullet…..

I am the hottest dude on this forum.

Aussie Chick,

Do you mind being nominated for 'software babe'?

Don't have a clue to what you look like , but you sure get an edge to ya :)

Ada Lovelace, of course,  the world's first programmer. Today is her birthday anniversary., BTW.

You're missing out. The Fem-mullet is the best kind, for overall bad 80s style.

Look, just log onto friendster. There aren't a lot of female programmers, but there are at least 29,9837,6736 sullen looking 19 year olds who seem to be addicted to instant messaging. I'm not sure if that's your thing, but I'll take a lonely 19 year old over a haggard female DBA any day...

Asia Carrera.

I'd work for her 80+ hours a week, if she provides me with the right benefit package.

babes are looking for more action these days

Grace Hopper is a little bit too dead for my taste.

"Asia Carrera.

Dude, methinks you have it backwards:

Asia Carrera would probably let you work for her 80+ hours a week, if you could provide her with the right size package.

Beware the power of my stinky feet!
