Congratulations Palo Alto Androids!

I was often the only female in my engineering classes at college (many decades ago) and I am so pleased to see more girls interested in technical subjects these days.

Happy building and programming!

Way to go, Palo Alto Androids! Congratulations on a wonderful win!

Keep changing the world! You own this!
