PyLadies Dublin June Virtual Event

Details

Our May event went fine after a few tech glitches with Vicky at the start. And we are rolling up our sleeves and going for another one.

❤️ A huge thanks to Python Ireland who are kind enough to have us use their Zoom account for this month's meetup.

It will also be live-streamed to Python Ireland's Youtube channel if you can't join us on Zoom: https://youtu.be/cf2yBDj_EFc
We will post up the video on our own PyLadies Dublin channel on either Vimeo/Youtube afterwards.

If you have any announcements, resources to share, feel free to add to our collab pad: https://cryptpad.fr/pad/#/2/pad/edit/yEUMRQsuoxjfX632qBuaLji8/
