For this month meeting we will have 2 tracks: Women Techmakers and Google Cloud Platform.
We will have talks on Google Cloud Platform as part of Google Cloud Platform Live and we will have free introduction workshops (mainly for women) in association with Coding Grace on Python and HTML/CSS as part of http://womentechmakers.com/
