What we're about
New to Coding? If you're a woman who's never coded before, this group is for you. We can help you get started with coding tutorials, laptop setup, and more.
Not a Newbie? Experienced women coders of any level are encouraged to come and improve their coding skills, whether hobbyist or professional. We use Python, but not in isolation: JS, Ruby, HTML, CSS, C, and other languages are essential tools of many Python users, and we encourage exploration.
PyLadies is an international mentorship group with a focus on helping more women become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community. PyLadies also aims to provide a friendly support network for women and a bridge to the larger Python world.
To provide a supportive, distraction-free learning environment, we have a code of conduct (http://www.pyladies.com/CodeOfConduct/).
IE Pyladies is especially welcoming to women from diverse backgrounds (race, age, LGBT, disability, nationality, etc). Read more about intersectionality (http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/Intersectionality).
