*NOTE: The goal of Pyladies is to encourage women to participate in the Python community. We welcome and encourage anyone who identifies as a woman to come to this event, and we are queer and trans friendly. Men will not be permitted to attend this event.*
Come join PyLadies of NYC for a Social/Hack Night!
Bring your laptop, your charger, and something you want to build, or learn in Python. We'll have a 'newbie' corner set up for those who want to learn the language, or chat about setting up virtual environment, and use git commands.
Have a specific project you're hacking on? You're welcome to give a short, elevator pitch! Want to run ideas by the group or find teammates for the upcoming Hack N' Jill Hackathon? Make use of the discussion board and then continue the discussion on the 15th! http://www.meetup.com/NYC-PyLadies/messages/boards/
