NYC PyLadies


We're the NYC chapter of PyLadies, an international community of women and non-binary people in tech.

We host monthly events, talks, and study groups where you can meet other pythonistas and learn more about programming, data science, web development, and more.

All skill levels welcome!



Join our Meetup group to hear about our free events in the NYC metro area.
