“When there are events going on I find it more rewarding to be a part of the event than to be a spectator”

“If you’re sincerely out there trying to help other people, I think that is the best way you can find contacts and build a network.”

“Over the years our more important purpose has been growing and fostering a global python community.”

(Trans*code) “There were lots of events going on in tech like hackathons and hack days. But there was never anything focused around trans folk.”

—Naomi Ceder
