Hi Arjan,

I could not say it better than commenter #3 "ryanc86" in the comments section of the article. In short, flabbergasted but also not surprised.

In the context of limited time and resources probably not. However, Black Girls that Code and Hacker Dojo might be a better platform in this instance.
