My Guest Today
I speak with Yele (pronounced jyel-ee), a newly-Canadian Toronto resident, full-stack developer, Team Lead, and member of the PyLadies community.
Notes, Links, and Corrections
Yele finished her degree in Cuba before moving to Canada to enroll in a masters program.

There’s no Lego in Cuba 😢 The US Government does not allow any American companies to do business in, or with, Cuba. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_embargo_against_Cuba
