Django Girls Workshop @ PyCon 2015

A guest post by Django Girls.



Django Girls is a non-profit organization that organizes free, one-day workshops to teach women who have never programmed before how to build their first web application using Python, Django, HTML and CSS.
You are invited to the PyCon 2015 Django Girls Workshop on April 9th, just before PyCon 2015 starts, at the Palais de Congres in Montreal. As a Django Girls workshop attendee, you will be provided a free ticket to PyCon which takes place from April 10th to April 12th, so you can dive deeper into the wonderful world of programming and get to know our amazing community.
You don’t need to have any programming experience - All you need to do is bring your laptop and your motivation to learn. You will work at your own pace in groups of 4 (3 attendees and one coach) Your coach will walk you through the Django Girls tutorial (http://tutorial.djangogirls.org)
If you would like to learn how to build your first web application (a blog) with Python and Django please check out the Django Girls website and apply. Applications are now open and will remain open until February 8th. Selected participants will be notified by February 22nd. If you have questions or need help, please send an email to pyconus@djangogirls.org.
Please spread the word about the workshop! We look forward to seeing you in Montreal!

You get a package that is hard to beat when you register for PyCon.

It’s having over 3,000 people in one place to learn from and share with. It’s joining a conversation in the hallway with the creators of open source projects. It’s taking yourself from beginner to intermediate, or intermediate to advanced. For some, it’s getting st…

PyCon 2018 Code of Conduct Transparency Report

The PyCon Code of Conduct sets standards for how our community interacts with others during the conference. For 2018 the Code of Conduct underwent an extensive overhaul, our procedures for reporting and responding to incidents were improved, and our on-site methods were improved. You can read more about the updates for 2018 here. Cumulatively these changes were meant to improve the safety, welcoming nature, and overall inclusivity of PyCon. Based on initial responses, feedback, and incidents reported this year we feel that we made progress on those goals. A Code of Conduct without appropriate reporting and response procedures is difficult to enforce transparently, and furthermore a lack of transparency in the outcomes of Code of Conduct incidents leaves the community without knowledge of how or if the organizers worked to resolve incidents. With that in mind, we have prepared the following to help the community understand what kind of incidents we received reports about and how the PyCon…

Yes!There are several things you can do ahead of time, that can save effort once you arrive at the sprints — and some preparations can even be made at home, before you arrive at PyCon:Have your operating system updated and patched — whether Mac, Windows, or Linux. This eliminates one possible source of problems with getting software up and running.Go ahead and install the version control system that will be used by the projects you are interested in. If you install both git and Mercurial on your computer…
