Tech Beyond Borders

Tech Beyond Borders

In December 2015 I left Paris to travel in Asia and meet tech & dev communities there. The project Tech Beyond Borders was born!
Before I left, I was curious about what it is like being a developer in Nepal, Malaysia or Myanmar in comparison to France. Do they work on the same challenges and with the same technologies as we do? How many women work in tech? What about the startup scene and innovation?
