Alyona (Una) Galyeva

Hi there! I am passionate about encouraging others to see different perspectives and constructively break the rules. My motto "Observe - Optimize - Learn - Repeat" follows me everywhere. Since 2021 I am Microsoft AI MVP. Python helped me to found my joy in building, optimizing and deploying end-to-end AI and Data Engineering Solutions.

Giulia Caglia

Hello, everyone! My name is Giulia Caglia (she/her), and I am thrilled to join the PyLadies community as a co-organizer. I currently work as a Data Engineer for a dynamic scale-up in Amsterdam.

At PyLadies, I will be helping with the organization of our events and representing our community at various professional gatherings. My main motivation for taking on this role is to provide a supportive platform for individuals who are underrepresented in the Python world. I believe in the power of community and am passionate about creating inclusive spaces where everyone can learn and thrive.

Beyond my professional life, I enjoy reading, playing chess, and engaging in immersive Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. These hobbies help me stay creative and analytical, both of which are skills I bring into my professional and community endeavors.
