Vicky Lee

Vicky Lee is a self-described ‘Pythonista’. She’s a coder, software engineer and community organizer. She began organizing events in order to bring people together and create a sense of community.

In this episode, Vicky describes how she fell into the diversity-driven sphere of tech, and tells us about her first venture into organizing meetups—which, surprisingly, stemmed from her Irish-born Chinese forum and the difficulties she encountered with her first tech event, Python Ireland.

Vicky also delves into why you should never ever put all of your eggs into one basket, discusses the importance of working well with business partners (even if they are your actual partner!), and why a great community is so crucial for a great event.
