Description

Nominated for Readers' Choice Award 2014 and awarded a place on the Awesome Indies list of quality independent fiction.
"If you want to get ahead, get noticed," is Orla Hanlon's motto. New to London and the first female programmer at CouperDaye, a global investment bank, she takes on a high-profile but controversial project.
With her new luxury apartment and a work-romance quietly on the side, Orla thinks she has everything under control.
Until a bug in her code causes chaos on the trading floor and Orla finds herself a scapegoat in a corporate game, fighting to save her new life in London.
"Orla's Code is well written, funny and charming. A great debut."
- Joseph Bell, author of Beachdog

Our customer reviews

A review copy was provided by the author in return for an honest review. Woo new genre!? Tech-Lit! With Orla's Code, Fiona Pearse has kicked chick-lit into modern times, and boy did it need a good kicking! Sometimes I get a little tired of reading novels about girls who are really only interested in shopping and fashion. I'm a techie who throws on the first thing I find in the wardrobe. My gadgets are my first love! This is why I found this so refreshing. It's a short read about a young woman named Orla who has recently moved to London to become couper-dayes first female programmer. Orla wants to get noticed and to do this she needs to take on a high profile project. It's risky but the pay off will be worth it. She'll have proved herself. My one problem with this book was that I didn't have a clue what they were talking about for a lot of the book. The terminology went waaaay over my head! If you happen to be into programming then you'll love this book. I found it really amusing that the office politics among the men were just as bad as any office full of women. Actually I think they're worse as most men will never admit they were wrong! This book has left me wanting more. Even though I found it hard to understand what was happening I enjoyed it as now I really want to find out more about information technology. It's always great to find a book that makes you want to expand your knowledge! more reviews @ www.gobookyourself.infoshow more
