As winter came, we decided to keep the good streak of talks given and sent an application to the Czech DevConf. Again we teamed up with Anežka and delivered a presentation called PyLadies Community in Brno: Mutual Help to Grow.
This time we focused on what drives the community builders: the people who enable the community's main focus. There are organizers, coaches, lecturers (also called the main coaches) and we realized, in short, two things:
- the motivation to join a community often isn't the same one which prompts a person to stay in a community
- there are real-life skills and gains to grab other than the whatever the community is about
We hoped for a real life talk on a hybrid conference which eventually wasn't possible. But the conference org team has no power over a global pandemic, so I'll just stop whining here. Kudos to the organizers who did a great job making it work virtually!
Much satisfaction, would do it again. :)
