What we're about

PyLadies SWFL is a mentoring group with a focus on nurturing gender diversity in the Southwest Florida Python community. Whether you are an expert in Python or haven't touched a terminal before, all levels are welcome (including COMPLETE BEGINNERS)!

Python is much more than a programming language. It is a vibrant international community made up of individuals with diverse skills and backgrounds. It is through this diversity that Python experiences continued growth and success.

If you are planning to attend our events please read PyLadies Code of Conduct: http://www.pyladies.com/CodeOfConduct/

ISABELA PRESEDO-FLOYD & MARS LEE: Make open source accessible

ABOUT SPEAKERS
Hi, I’m Isabela (she/her), UX/UI designer officially and a professional question-asker by self-proclamation. I also work at Quansight Labs and spend most of my time in open source communities like JupyterLab and Spyder. Accessibility, community, and supporting new and underrepresented people are a few of the things that matter to me.

Hi, I’m Mars, I poke at front-end code! I also design web pages and draw comics about code at CodeSprite Explains. I contribute to open-source projects, specifically to NumPy's website, documentation, and accessibility.

ABOUT TALK
Do you want to make a contribution to an open-source project but not sure where to start? Do you want to make the internet a more accessible place? Learn to do all this and more in this workshop!
We will discuss how blind and visually impaired people use the internet, what alt-text is and why it is important, and how and why to make open-source projects accessible. We will also learn how to make alt-text for tech documentation, with a focus on alt-text in the scientific Python ecosystem. And by the end of this workshop, you’ll have made a contribution to an open-source project using GitHub!
