PyLadies Melbourne
Melbourne women who like programming in Python


Welcome to PyLadies Melbourne! We are the Melbourne chapter of a global network of women interested in the Python programming language. If that's you, please join us! We welcome everyone from professional Python developers to newcomers, curious weekend dabblers, and self-taught part-timers. We meet at least once a month.

We intend to be inclusive of both cis and trans women. We aim to organise events with a feminist sensibility - one that centres women's experiences and voices. Currently, we ask that only women attend our events, although check individual events to confirm.

The PyLadies Melbourne chapter was founded by Brianna Laugher (@pfctdayelise) in 2016.


We have a monthly meeting, on the third Monday of each month. Please join our meetup group and RSVP to meetups there.

Events are subject to the PyLadies Code of Conduct.
