Coding Grace are a group of developers based in Ireland who love to code and do other geeky and not necessarily crafty activities. Some of us code full-time, or just for fun (or both). We have people who are part of other technical user groups such as Python Ireland, Ruby Ireland, Dublin ALT.NET, GameCraft, and more. We provide female-friendly workshops and events in an environment for developers and aspiring developers mentored by majority female instructors. Vicky Lee is the co-founder and main organiser of Coding Grace workshops.
PyLadies Dublin is the first Irish chapter of PyLadies, we are a group of women developers who love the Python programming language. We write code by day or night. Some of us hack on Python projects on the side, while others work full-time on Python development. But it doesn't matter. We all just like writing Python code, and that's what brings us together. Vicky Lee is the founder and organiser of PyLadies Dublin.
