Trans*Code event at EuroPython ’23 in Prague #Python #EuroPython #Trans
At EuroPython 2022 in Dublin last summer, Trans*Code held its joyous return after the pandemic. This year, in collaboration with the trans/NB community in Czechia, they will be back to continue building the tradition. The full day workshop/hackday will be open to all trans and non-binary folk, allies, coders, designers and visionaries of all sorts.
When: 18 July 2023
Where: Prague Congress Centre (PCC), Room TBC
Trans*Code is an international hack event series focused on building connections and community while exploring the tech side of transgender issues and opportunities. Trans*Code events are informal hackdays where participants can explore their ideas in collaboration with like-minded people. Coders, designers, activists, visionaries of all sorts, and community members not currently working in technology are all welcome and encouraged to participate.
Trans*Code events are similar to hackathons, but with some key differences:
Events are only one day long. So you don’t need to take off an entire weekend;
Events are not competitive. At Trans*Code events, we’re all pulling for each other. While we do have final presentations, they are made in the spirit of sharing, not in the spirit of competition;
Events encourage following your interests. Want to work on that project? Fine, do it. Want to spend the morning with this one, and the afternoon with that one? The choice is yours. Trans*Code subscribes to the Un-Conference philosophy – whatever happens is exactly what should happen.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
