This month's PyLadies meetup will be held at the new Shopify office! Join us for some free drinks and food, as well as to mingle with the other PyLadies and our supporters! This upcoming meetup, we have talks from Julie Zuzek (The Corporate Yogi), who will be speaking about leadership cultures, and Anarosa Paredes (VM Farms), who will be speaking on how to get started with Python:
Julie Zuzek is the Founder and Director of The Corporate Yogi. After 15 years of working as a senior marketer in high-growth tech companies, and 12 years of dedicated yoga, she realized the need for major change in how we operate businesses. She has worked diligently to bring more yoga and yogic thinking to business in an effort to decrease toxic behaviour, ego and bad management.
Julie will be speaking on Leadership Cultures.
Anarosa Paredes is a Python Developer in Toronto, where she works at VM Farms. She’s interested in empowering others to learn programming, and in buying too many Creamsicles for any sensible person to eat. She regularly volunteers to teach kids Scratch, mentors occasionally at Ladies Learning Code, and is a co-organizer for the Pyladies Toronto meetup.
Anarosa will be speaking on how to get started with learning Python.
Also, just to clear up any confusion: everyone who is interested in coming to this meetup is welcome! You do not have to be a Python programmer, or a woman - all we ask is that you are respectful to all the other attendees :)
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
