Thanks to Lukas’ great initiative, we’re organizing the first PyStar Paris event ever! The event will take place on June 22nd in the Mozilla Paris office, from 19:00-22:00 CET (though we can stay to network and talk until 23:00 CET)
This is a wonderful occasion to teach women how to program in Python, and will lead to many more future meet-ups. Whether you are beginner or more experienced in Python programming, come and join us for an evening of fun and learning!
Here is some more info about the event:
The PyStar program is a workshop designed to teach all women (including trans women) and their friends who are looking to learn how to program in a friendly non-alpha-geek environment. The material is aimed at learners who have never programmed before though there is also material for those with some programming experience in other languages who are interested in learning a new language. This free event relies on volunteer teachers so we’re looking for people who already know Python, and have an interest in teaching to come guide the attendees as they work on small scripts that teach the power of this very accessible language.
So if you’re in the area and wish to participate, you can sign up here. Feel free to tell your Parisian friends about the event!
We’re also looking for volunteers to teach Python during this workshop (both women and men). If you’re interested, you can sign up on the same page. If you know anyone around you who’d be interested, again feel free to spread the word.
See you all there!
(on a side note, I’ll be participating as well. Can’t wait to learn new things! 🙂 )
