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.

  2. There’s no Lego in Cuba 😢 The US Government does not allow any American companies to do business in, or with, Cuba.

  3. Matt Medland - now chair of the MSCAC program. Matt, you had such an impact on Yele’s life that to this day she can recall your name instantly. Thank you ❤️
