Success is in her code: App State’s Jenny Ly among up-and-coming women in computer science

Appalachian State University junior Chau “Jenny” Ly found her passion for programming and science during her first hackathon — a collaborative coding event for computer programmers. Her coding skills also earned her a Most Creative Award for Dinder, the mobile app she developed with her team.

When asked what interested her to pursue the field of computer science, Ly, a computer science major originally from Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, who currently lives in Sherrills Ford, said, “I have always loved math, sciences and computers over anything else. I thought I would give this major a try and I fell in love with it.”
