Increasing Women Engagement in the Python Community

A session at EuroPython 2012

Wednesday 4th July, 2012

6:30pm to 7:30pm (CET)

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.
