PyGotham 2011: Boosting the numbers: Python for Women and Doing Distributed Organizing of Workshops
The PyStar program is a workshop designed to teach all women (including trans women) and their friends who are looking to learn how to program in a friendly non-alpha-geek environment. The material on the http://pystar.org site was originally developed by the Boston Python Workshop which was held March 4/5, 2011. Currently PyStar events use a mix of badges from the PyStar site and their own curriculum. As this project continues hopefully this site will be a hub of learning materials geared at all levels of Python learners, with a focus on teaching people in a safe and supportive manner.
