Welcome to PyStar!

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 this site originally incorporated material developed by the Boston Python Workshop, which was held March 4/5, 2011. Currently events decide and develop their own curriculum and badges using a mix of what’s on this site and their own preferences. As this project continues hopefully this site will keep having more teaching materials added for a variety of skill levels.

If you would like to hold a PyStar workshop in your area using this material, please get in touch by joining our google group. Also if you have organized an event and have material you’d like to submit to help other organizers please fork the repo and do a pull request or ask to become a collaborator via the google group.
