Well done for the wonderful job of organizing a meetup and a tutorial for
the teeming women population that have registered. I would also like to
welcome you back from your trip. I read your interview link and all I can
say is "Keep moving", you'll get to your destination in no distant time.

The postcode idea is a good one and I would love to contribute my quota to
it, if possible. I have joined the Python Africa group, it's cool in the
sense that there is not particular framework being discussed: just

@Lekan Wahab, how are thing going on with you and your team. Could you
please enlighten with any updates as per organizing DjangoGirls in Osun

Finally, I'm looking forward to the meeting agenda.

*Behind every no entry sign, there is a door.*
