We are an international mentorship group with a focus on helping more women and people who identify as women in a way significant to them become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community. Our mission is to promote, educate and advance a diverse Python community through outreach, education, conferences, events and social gatherings.
PyLadies also aims to provide a friendly support network for women and a bridge to the larger Python world. Anyone with an interest in Python is encouraged to participate! If you'd like to participate in one of our events but have reasons not to have an online presence, please feel free to contact us.
Here is the global PyLadies Code of Conduct. PyLadiesSF applies the more specific LadyNerds Code of Conduct because we are dedicated to providing a safe, inclusive, welcoming, and harassment-free space and experience for all members and guests, regardless of gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, socioeconomic status, body size, ethnicity, nationality, level of experience, age, or religion (or lack thereof). The Code of Conduct exists because of that dedication. We do not tolerate harassment in any form and we prioritize marginalized people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort.
To contact us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. This email address also accepts PayPal donations, or you can contribute at https://secure.meetup.com/PyLadiesSF/contribute/. We are officially part of the Python Software Foundation.
Tickets are $10. If you are not able to afford the ticket please contact the organizers. All proceeds from the event will be donated to Girls Who Code and Black Girls Code. Tickets can be purchased here.

Title: Reverse engineering your mouth!
* As babies, many of us learn to talk by unconsciously figuring out how to move the muscles in our face. Let’s learn to talk again, but this time by looking into what’s going on under the hood!
Pink Trombone is a web tool that lets users create sounds by interacting with a virtual oral cavity, nasal cavity, tongue, and throat. Are those building blocks actually enough for speech, and can we teach Pink Trombone to speak English words? What sounds are especially difficult to produce - for humans, and in the app - and why? Join me in digging into the technology behind this app and learning more about how our voices really work.
Evy loves to sing (especially with others) and code (especially for social good). She loves her communities.
Speaker: Grishma Jena
Title: Demystifying Data Science
* Data Science is changing the world - but what does it mean? Why use it? What questions can it answer? This talk introduces Data Science and explains the Data Science pipeline and algorithms using real-life examples. It is aimed at budding data scientists and anyone curious about interpreting data.
Title: Encapsulation, How and Why
Writing tightly coupled code is fast and easy, but not so much fun for future you.
Title: A Step By Step Intro Into Squashing Django Migrations.
* Django has a great built-in migrations framework that essentially allows you to version control your database changes. But squashing is what happens when you have many different database changes, some currently in production, that you would like to reduce without causing any downtime. In this talk, I will be discussing what you need to know to make migration changes, when to squash them, and the type of problems you might run into with squashing them.
