ATLANTA - October 28Women Who Code (WWCode), the world’s largest and most active community of women in tech, is proud to announce WWCode DataPy 2019. This premier developer summit will explore the latest in Data Science and Python technology through innovative talks, round table panel discussions, and in-depth workshops featuring industry leaders from around the world. The event is part of the WWCode Python and WWCode Data Science technical track communities, which host monthly virtual events on their respective topics.

WWCode DataPy 2019 will be held on November 2nd at the offices of Honeywell, in Atlanta Georgia. A number of experts in the fields of Data Science and Python have been scheduled to appear at the event and share their insights and actionable advice. Speakers include keynote SalesLoft Engineering Manager and WWCode Atlanta Director Erica Stanley, Capital One Technology Lead Vithya Shanmugaselvam, AT&T ioT Cybersecurity Advocate Kelvina Burrell, QuantumBlack Analytics Engagement Manager Maria Schwartz, and Honeywell Data Scientist Yuan Quin.

WWCode DataPy 2019 is the culmination of the inaugural year for the WWCode Python and the WWCode Data Science communities, which have each been holding virtual trainings, webinars, and talks with industry experts throughout the year. WWCode Data Science Leadership Fellow Maddie Shang said, “As a self-taught Engineer and ML Researcher, I fully appreciate how difficult the path can be and still is. That’s why I dreamt of building a free and fully remote community/program to build diverse AI / DS leaders by industry experts and leaders. I never thought in a short few months we would grow a global community that is 800+ strong. I am ecstatic that this event will bring our community members together, face to face, so we can better support one another to create impact in Data Science and ML.”

Valuable sponsorship for WWCode DataPy 2019 is provided by companies that believe in a more diverse and inclusive tech industry. Sponsors include Honeywell, The Home Depot, McKinsey & Company, E*TRADE, and the Python Summit Foundation. By making this developer summit possible, they are leading the way towards a world where women are proportionally represented as technical leaders, executives, founders, VC’s, board members, and software engineers.

“Our technical track networks have allowed us to bring the benefits of WWCode to engineers living across the world,” said Women Who Code Interim Chief Executive Officer Joey Rosenberg. “Watching their rapid growth over the course of this inaugural year has been incredibly inspiring. The technical track communities and in-person summit are exciting because they offer a platform for engineers to continue to advance their knowledge and build networks that can help level up in their careers.”
