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!

Hi Friends

I'm know about of the django cms platforms, and I ask to you this community in case of someone of you can be orient me about it.

I want build a website with some requirements as multilanguage site, contact forms(include interact with database) between others.

The major section of the site is static information and a beautiful design 

I want use some platform of Django CMS (may be Django-CMS or Wagtail) for exploit the potential of the Django framework and build with Django Framework the tasks related with backend and help me of the Django CMS platform in related to other tasks as a beautiful interface, pages, between others...


Is possible that I'm in the right  if I think use some Django platform and modify (just in case) with Django web framework the site that I want?

In affirmative case ... 
What Django CMS platform do you recommend me?
Currently I'm thinking in explore Wagtail (http://wagtail.io/) or Django-CMS(https://www.django-cms.org/en/

WIth these platformas Can I get templates or themes for the UI and user experience?

I would that somebody of you could will orient me about it

Thanks
What's so good about Wagtail? Free. Wagtail is open source. We've used the BSD license, which gives you as much freedom as possible. And we're here to support and encourage a community of developers to make Wagtail better and better. Beautiful. Working with your content shouldn't be a grind!

Hey Joel, is it location-bound?  Can teachings be done remotely?   (If location-bound, let me know about New York opportunities).

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!

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.

Hi everyone,
I've been programming in Python for about 6 years now, I consider my skill as  'intermediate' level.  I would like to learn more advanced topics such as metaclasses. Does anyone have some recommendations on good books for learning advanced python?

Kinds Regards,
Faria

Hah, I'll trawl for books.  FWIW, I found a good blog post on the subject of metaclasses. It;s an old post but I found it enlightening: http://eli.thegreenplace.net/2011/08/14/python-metaclasses-by-example/ It's a class factory!?

I'm working on my first django project. Does anyone have a tip for keeping field data posts across multiple pages? I don't want a dynamic form, I don't want to use the form wizard and have them all get evaluated at the same time, what I want is to have View A to post data to View B, and then have View C able to use data from View A and View B.  Most of the tips I've found online concern get.POST.getlist, which either returns an empty list of None (for me). The only solution I've been able to come up with is putting the form from View A on View B and using data=request.POST so the old data gets filled into the fields, which works, but is hideous. Any tips? I've been working on this stupid detail for 2 days now. I also added the local memory cache and session middleware in the settings, but all that seems to do is make me have to restart everything any time I change anything... Going a little nuts here. Anyway, any suggestions are appreciated.

Hi,

assuming you are using FormView's and what you are saying, in the form_valid method of each view, I would store the cleaned_data of the form inside the session ( request.session['formA']=form.cleaned_data )
After which your data will be available from any of the following views.
Don't forget to cleanup the session once the data has been used.

Hope this helps

Anna, thanks, it's tue, you got reason, I haven't specify that my albums model as convert_to_south and after add the SlugField and perform the changes with schemamigration. My SlugField already reflected on database. https://cloudup.com/i1ob_YztDur 
I not understood some thing.
Why, when I apply 
./manage.py schemamigration albums --auto  command
I should specify some value?

View the command and your effect in this image url https://cloudup.com/iP_69ufodS0 

This is because the SLugField is not accept null values?  
The first data on my database (data already entered) will stay with value of "1" such as I see on the database?  https://cloudup.com/i1ob_YztDur

Thanks very much for your support :)

TransTech Social

Hi,

Un- or under-employment. Harassment and violence. Suicide. These were the sobering things I considered as I prepared to transition, the risks that I run as a transgender person in our society. And as frightening as those things were and are for me, they are orders of magnitude worse for trans people who are young, who are people of color, who are female, and/or who lack access to education, job skills, and employment.

The statistics are grim, to say the least - according to the Gay and Lesbian Task force:

•15% of the sample population earns less than $10K per year (an additional 21% earns less than $20K)

• 78% of transgender Americans faced severe harassment during childhood

• 41% had attempted suicide, compared to the general population, where only 1.6% have attempted suicide


That is why I want you to know about Trans Tech, a tech skills training academy focussing on trans people. I'm currently on their advisory board and their 15k in 15 Days Committee, and today is my day. My goal is to help raise at least $1,000 to help launch their new program to address unemployment in the transgender community.

The TransTech Apprenticeship is meant to equip people with skills for Graphic Design and Web Coding, while they work on real life paid projects. It's a win-win - the students get experience and build a work portfolio, while members of the community can access their services at very reasonable rates. And any profits go back to support the program.

So yes, I’m asking you to donate to this cause, and to share this campaign in your networks. The tech world has been good to me, so I want other trans folk to get a start in it as well. I hope you feel the same.

Please check out our funding page - http://igg.me/at/transtechsocial/x, which has a video (featuring me!) that explains the project a bit more. And for even more information, please visit http://transtechsocial.org or ping me.

And then please donate and share.

Thank you,
Naomi Ceder
