Details

Beeswax will be hosting the NYC PyLadies September study group; this is a regular gathering for PyLadies of all levels to work on solo projects or in collaboration with one another. It will be a welcoming space where any Python related question is fair game, beginner or advanced, or in-between.

Our goal is to foster a community where attendees can share coding tips, cool python finds, or short tutorials, set realistic goals, and encourage one another. We can’t wait to build a stronger PyLadies community in New York City!
