We're starting a new online course: Beginning Programming in Python.
It will be held on the courses mailing list: subscribe to that list to join.
It will probably be a short course, 4-5 weeks; but it may be extended depending on interest.
The course is free and open to both women and men. Standard LinuxChix rules apply: Be polite, be helpful. And do the homework. :-)
The Ada Initiative is conducting a survey of women's participation in open technology and culture communities. The survey is open to both men and women. The survey takes about five minutes to complete. Take it here, and please spread the word! http://adainitiative.org/projects/census/
