Would you like to learn Python in a non-alpha geek, friendly environment? Come out to the third PyStar MPLS to get started learning this amazingly intuitive programming language. These workshops are modeled after the RailsBridge "Ruby on Rails for Women" courses and are targeted at women who are new to programming, or new to Python. All skill levels & interests welcome. This course is aimed at female identified folks (self-identified, full-spectrum - cis, trans, and otherwise); if you do not identify as such you are welcome to come if you are the guest of a female identified person. Please feel free to get in touch if you have questions. Register here (for free!):

You will need:

* A laptop running Windows XP or later, Mac OS X 10.5 or greater, or some flavor of Linux or BSD.

* Please set up your laptop with the required software:


* We also need volunteers! If you have programmed before, consider becoming a group guide and help participants with the material.

* Please ask if you need child care (or assistance), ASL interpretation, mobility access, or help with other access barriers. Clockwork is mobility accessible

I helped out at this last month -- it was great! If you want to learn about programming in a super friendly, welcoming environment, PyStar's a great place to start.
