About PyLadies AMS: PyLadies is an international mentorship group with a focus on helping more women become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community through education, conferences, events and social gatherings.
Pyladies is organized in 23 local chapters in several cities of the US, Europe, Asia and Africa. The Amsterdam chapter (http://www.meetup.com/PyLadiesAMS/) has been founded in Summer 2013 and it has already organized 4 meetups. Each of these meetups consisted in an evening social event with 3-4 talks on Python programming, tutorials on libraries for particular applications (e.g. data mining) and general best practices in software engineering and attracted around 50 participants.

Sponsors: Thanks to the Computer Science department and the Network Institute (http://www.networkinstitute.org) for sponsoring this event.
