PyLadies Austin monthly meetup

PyCon!

We'll kick off with a quick overview of PyCon - if you weren't there this year, you missed a lot of great content!

As a part of that recap, our organizer, Barbara Shaurette, will be talking about the Young Coders tutorials that were the hit of the conference: http://pycon.blogspot.com/2013/03/how-kids-stole-show-young-coders.html

 

Lightning talks

This month, we're focusing on lightning talks.  Share something that you know about with your fellow PyLadies!

A lightning talk is a short presentation, ten minutes or less, covering any topic in brief.  For example, you can introduce a project you've been working on, tell a story about an experience you've had as a programmer, or talk about a favorite Python module that you love using.  Content-wise, anything goes.

You can make a few slides to go along with your presentation, but you don't have to - just talking, using a whiteboard, or doing a code demo are all great ways to support a lightning talk.

To sign up, comment here with a topic idea or add your name to the spreadsheet:

Collaborative project

We'll follow up lightning talks with a brainstorming session to discuss our first collaborative project.

Anyone at any experience level is welcome to join in - you'll learn about application architecture and working with APIs, practice your Python skills, learn more about using Git and GitHub, and get some experience working with each other a team on an open source project.  And we'll have mentors to help along the way, answering questions and offering guidance.

Together we can build something really cool.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
