6:30pm to 7:30pm
Are you a woman wanting to break into the engineering field? Or do you know any women wanting to learn how to code, but don’t know how to help them? Perhaps our nerdy ladies are a bit shy too ask for help. That’s okay! I’ll give you some tools to nudge you in the right direction.
In this session, I’ll be talking about how I increased women’s engagement in the Python community though demonstrating how versatile the language is with practical projects, by creating a safe space for women to learn and to fail, and by encouraging involvement beyond the classroom.
By day, I am a pseudo-web developer. By night, I am the founder of the San Francisco chapter of PyLadies, a group that mentors and supports women in the Python community. I'm also a champion for Women Who Code in San Francisco, a ~1000 member meetup group, where I lead a weekly study group for women wanting to learn Python.
