Personal growth and the Python community

Yashasvi Misra (~yashasvi84)


I owe both my personal and professional growth to communities. As an engineering student in computer science, the first open tech community I joined was PyLadies. I have since then been actively involved in the Python community, always trying to learn and grow. Little did I expect how beneficial that would be. In this session, I will share my journey with the Python community, the impact it had on me, and how it boosted my self-confidence. If you don’t know where to start, join me to explore what I have learned so far.
