Skillscast (film, code, slides): Can I ever be good enough to be a developer?

Do you find yourself on the fence as to whether you could feasibly see yourself working as a computer programmer? Maybe you really enjoy learning to code but can't help but think “I could never be good enough”? For numerous reasons, too many women are denying themselves the opportunity to pave a career in software development. In this session Rosa Fox tells her story of becoming a developer.

Hello Ladies from Memphis, TN. Restarted the Python track on Codecademy tonight. Finished first 10 exercises. I'm slammed by school right now, but will do a little at a time. I'll finish my first AA degree in the Fall (only one math left after Summer term) and will also begin the coursework for my AS in App development and programming. Hoping to form a pyladies group at my Community College. :)

Hi Brad! I'm the one who couldn't make the MemphisPython meeting the other night. I just knew ya'll would feel that way! My hope for Memphis PyLadies is simply to create another door to both the Memphis and Greater Python Community. The thing I'm seeing as I talk to women who might be interested, is an immediate response of "Oh I could never do that." I believe many barriers can be self perceptual rather than originating from community.

I know in my experience, my older son was my first introduction to Python. (He and I wrote batch files in GW Basic together when he was 5) :) I wish I'd been able to keep it up then. He was passionate and welcoming about sharing information about open-source origins and Python and Linux.  A couple of years ago I actually met a young man doing Route 66 with his father in (no kidding) the Petrified Forest. He mentioned he was taking the Summer to work on his coding skills while travelling west with his dad. I asked if it was open-source. I even accidentally called it Anaconda. :) At a viewing station, on the side of a cliff, with a huge storm rolling in, he was just as passionate and encouraging.

I'm looking forward to meeting ya'll at MemphisPython and being part of your group as well! Thank you for the offer! It's going to be a great Summer!

I was wondering if there's anything happening with the London chapter? :) PyData is about to hit London 21-23 February 2014, and I want to join effort with the organisers if they're here!

hello, my name is gabriela. Me and some of my friends would like to represent o PyLadies here in Brazil. We've heard about PyLadies, and we think it's very interesting. Until now, we're making some events about python, and next year we are planning to make something just for girls. If you dont have any representative of the PyLadies here in Brazil, would you think we could bring it to here?

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!

Hey, Girls! 

We're really exited to share our first workshop on last Saturday (a whole day!).  There were almost 25 girls joined us, and lots of them were "the beginner of the programming (python)"! 

The +PyLadies Taiwan will continue considering our next activity, if any of you wants to give us suggestion, please contact to us!  :-)

I need to ask... Why is necessary a girls club to learn Python?

Elena - first, it isn't girls. We are grown ups, therefore we are women. Second, please read our mission on our website, pyladies.com. PyLadies is for everybody, and welcomes anyone.

Anyone want to start a group in Chicago? I found out about PyLadies the other day at a Rails Girls and would enjoy meeting up with other women to work on python projects. I'm an intermediate developer and want to work on getting more proficient.
