What we're about

We are an international mentorship group with a focus on helping people who identify as women in a way significant to them become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community. Our mission is to promote, educate and advance a diverse Python community through outreach, education, conferences, events and social gatherings.

PyLadies also aims to provide a friendly support network for women and a bridge to the larger Python world. Anyone with an interest in Python is encouraged to participate! If you'd like to participate in one of our events but have reasons not to have an online presence, please feel free to contact us.

Here is the global PyLadies Code of Conduct (http://www.pyladies.com/CodeOfConduct/). PyLadiesSF applies the more specific LadyNerds Code of Conduct (http://bit.ly/LadyNerds-CoC) because we are dedicated to providing a safe, inclusive, welcoming, and harassment-free space and experience for all members and guests, regardless of gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, socioeconomic status, body size, ethnicity, nationality, level of experience, age, or religion (or lack thereof). The Code of Conduct exists because of that dedication. We do not tolerate harassment in any form and we prioritize marginalized people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort.

To contact us, please email sf@pyladies.com. This email address also accepts PayPal donations, or you can contribute at https://secure.meetup.com/PyLadiesSF/contri... (https://secure.meetup.com/PyLadiesSF/contribute/). We are officially part of the Python Software Foundation.

Software engineers — bring whatever code you want to work on to a Zoom shared with other PyLadies or join to help others with their code! You don't have to be coding in Python; we're just excited to see you again after so long.

Here is a tentative schedule:

5:00 PM—Welcome
5:05 PM—Quickly share about your project or the kind of help you seek and connect with people who want to help
5:15 PM—Move into breakout rooms and code (and maybe eat your dinner simultaneously?)
6:50 PM—Go back to the main Zoom room and share what you accomplished
7:00 PM—See you next time!
