WITS Galway Python Coding workshop 23 August.
Thanks to Vicky Twomey Lee for leading a great python coding workshop for WITS members in Galway. The events was organised by Sandra Riordan with thanks to the Portershed for hosting the event. Our photo shows Vicky and Sandra with Mary Rodgers of Portershed. Thanks to all who attended, great to read the feedback on Twitter.
We have updated the WITS website thanks to Jaine Blayney WITS Exec member and Niamh Rushe. We have added member profiles to each page replacing the Lab Coats and Lace box. The members' area and registration have been removed. We hope you like the changes.
We are seeking member profiles for the WITS website. Would you like to be featured in the rotating menu? If so please email WITS with a photograph and between 50 and 100 words about yourself.
