One of Caktus’ most pedagogically focused developers, Caleb Smith, will be teaching a class to a group of local budding Pythonistas tomorrow, Saturday 26th, and Caktus’ Rebecca Lovewell will be contributing as a teaching assistant. You can read more about it, and sign up via the meetup page for the event. The class is run by the local chapter of Girl Develop It, a group focused on improving the landscape of women in tech via women focused (but not exclusive) educational opportunities.
This class is a labor of love for Caleb and Rebecca who contribute for fun and as a way to help out new coders. Caleb has developed his curriculum in the open using a GitHub repository with input from Rebecca, Nick Lang, and Leslie Ray. It’s great to see a distributed team collaborating using development tools to create curriculum that ultimately gets more women involved in technology through local classes.
