Hi ladies. I'm new to the group and hoping for advice/opinions. I'm thinking of doing a bootcamp program to become a developer. I do have some experience, I learned a few languages in college but that was 15 years ago and I need to re-learn everything. Also I am a mom with two little kids and work- life balance is very important to me. How does a career in tech fit into life? The stereotype of a coder is someone who works 100hrs a week, and that's what some of these boot camps expect. On the other hand it seems like a tech career would be very compatible with working from home. I'm a social worker right now which is not at all amenable to working from home. Thoughts? Experiences?

Hi Pyladies!  I am exploring the world of Python and starting learning on Code Academy.  Any advice on how to learn programming for someone who has never programmed before?

I started a blog. 
Hello world! That's sofa king cheesy but seriously how I feel. I'm Kacie. Your average WIT. I wasn't coding on a Commodore 64 when I was eight years old. I was playing with barbie dolls. I got a Nintendo when I was 6. I never...

+Sara Safavi  and I speaking are Grace Hopper in action. Our Student Opportunity Lab was a lot of fun. In six 20 minute sessions we packed in the following subjects to under-grad and grad students:

- Researching to find a company with a pro-diversity culture and what to look for
- Technical interview tips
- sexism vs Exclusion
- Dealing with diversity issues in the workplace
- Github etiquette (when we had time left)

It was the most rewarding talk I have done. 

Mad Props to +Angela Dean  for sticking around and taking these photos for us.

Here are our slides we printed for the attendees if you're interested:

So you feel passionately about helping spread awareness about tech gender diversity? Do you not fit the “cookie-cutter mold” of what people believe engineers “should look like?”If you answered yes to any of these questions I invite you to buy the shirt & help spread the word and help us redefine “what an engineer should look like”.#iLookLikeAnEngineer Buy 2 or more and save on shipping! Share with your friends.Click the Green Button to reserve yo...

Working ith python 2.7 or 3x + .. which choose?

I am recently adressing some projects with python and Django [1.7 or forward] For some time now I've seen that python is in your 3.4.3 version.

However in the forums I've seen that there is many people that currently are working with python 2.7.9 version

What is the version that can I choose?

I know that this question depends of that type of libraries I have in my project and I these libraries are supported for new pythons versions.

In python 3 in forward, how to is the status of pip and so..?

Here in this links I found some useful information https://python3wos.appspot.com/ https://wiki.python.org/moin/Python2orPython3

Thanks for your orientation and suport.

Women navigating tech culture’s choppy waters can use all the help they can get. Sites connecting women and other equally novel configurations of not-straight-white-dudes within the tech industry can feel few and far between, so it’s worth promoting what we’ve got to work with. 
Can data translate into social change? We certainly hope so.

A Path Forward that Starts with "M" and Isn't Mentorship

Getting women to enter tech is important, but so is understanding and improving the environment they're entering. We're asking women to rate the companies they work for on the metrics that matter to them. We're turning those ratings into scorecards -- Measurement -- that bring transparency and accountability to our key issues, and create real change in companies driven by the women who work there. We don't make money on this -- we just believe it's a better way.

We'd love your help! Check out scores for tech giants like Google, Epic Systems, and Intel. Rate your company. Then pass it on! :)
Share how well your company supports the women who work there. It's anonymous and takes 3 minutes!

About this community

We are a group of women developers worldwide who love the Python programming language. We write code by day or night. Some of us hack on Python projects on the side, while others work full-time on Python development. But it doesn't matter. We all just like writing Python code, and that's what brings us together. This community is for both PyLadies and PyGents!

Has anyone done a 4-day intensive course to learn Python?  I am starting to realize that I need more than online instruction and might need to have a human teach me.  The course are more than I can afford, but if I am going to make this career change I might need to consider it an investment...right?  Any impute would be appreciated!

Have you had a look at any MOOC? If you haven't, they might be a good compromise between Codecademy and an intensive course.

Hi Everyone

I have some question In a project I have the need of work with users which are of three (may be more) types of them have different roles: physician patient administrator

I have been thinking use of the Django Model Users and extend it creating a userprofile model ... But I ignore how to manage the different roles because, the userprofile model will have fields of the user model, althought I don't know how to address the roles topic.

1 User have Many userprofiles may be? I don't know

Or may be I will should create a Roles Model/Table in where I specify the roles types and create a relation with the Users Model.

I am a few confuse about of how to address this subject

Searching I found this app. https://github.com/dabapps/django-user-roles

If somebody can orient me about it, I will be much grateful Best Regards
django-user-roles - Simple role-based user permissions for Django.

Hi Marianne . Yeah. I'm checking https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.8/topics/auth/default/#topic-authorization.

I don't understand when you tell me "old project".

Thanks for your attention. :)

Kata: Robolectric Integration


Saw this in +Corey Leigh Latislaw​'s newsletter this week. Does anyone use Katas? Have you seen Corey's chapter "Hello Robolectric” of the Android Activity Book? See the beta version here.
#womentechmakers #robolectric
 
A coding kata is a way to practice something to get better at it — just like the karate counterpart. I also use katas to get familiar with new tools and approaches.

In Android, it’s difficult to get started with TDD because JUnit isn’t supported natively in the JVM. Robolectric gets around this restriction, but must be configured each time.
