What's new with Cleveland PyLadies? Well...we're glad you asked!
We have recently added a new member to our leadership team: Kjera!
Kjera works in the Office of Institutional Research at Kent State University and focuses on student equity, student success, and course data. Although a Python novice, Kjera sees how valuable Python can be to her work and is encouraged by the Cleveland PyLadies Mission and Values. She is excited to help bring PyLadies events to experienced and beginning Python enthusiasts in Northeast Ohio.
We are moving! Cleveland PyLadies web resources will soon point to the much shorter url clepyd.org. So much less typing!
In addition to our event calendar on meetup.com and this blog, we are adding a web app (written in Django, of course) so that members can check in online. This helps us monitor attendance, keep in touch with repeat attendees, engage with new members, and ultimately improve the overall experience of our meetups. We are also working to add a shared job board for the Python user groups in Cleveland.
We are partnering with local data consultancy Pandata to provide at least one data science specific event per quarter. They are passionate about data ethics and we are excited to have them on board.
