Astro at PyCon 2015

Hello from Montréal, QC! We're here participating in the annual North American 2015 Python Conference.

So far Caleb has helped out at the Django Girls Workshop with three other Caktus Group colleagues.

I went to the PyCon Education Summit. Great to see folks from around the world, including North Carolina, share cutting edge education ideas. Lots of amazing K-12 and University examples of how Python is teaching programming.

We're now hanging out at the Expo telling folks from around the world about Durham and our school. So far I've met people from Poland, Canada, India, Hawaii, and lots of US States. Very fun to represent for North Carolina.

PyCon 2015 : See You in Montreal!

Caleb Smith and I are going to Montréal, Quebec, Canada next week for PyCon 2015! It's a huge conference all about the open-source Python programming language. Python is a big part of what we teach here at Astro Code School.

We’ll be at booth #613 in Exhibit Hall 210 in the Palais des Congres. Please come look for us. We’ll have the usual swag like t-shirts for women and men. PLUS we’ll have the very addictive game Ultimate Tic Tac Toe. Play against one another on our big touch screen. It’s harder than it sounds. Will you be a Ultimate Tic Tac Toe champion? Can we win more games than Caktus Group?

Caleb is co-presenting with our Caktus colleagues on Wednesday April 8 from 3:30 p.m. - 5 p.m on Building SMS Applications with Django. He’s also coaching at the Django Girls Workshop April 9. No programming experience required. Just bring a laptop and some energy to learn. You’ll be going through the awesome Django Girls tutorial.

I’ll be attending the Python Education Summit. I’m really looking forward to learning more from other professional and amateur python educators. The talk schedule looks nice!

Are you going to PyCon 2015? What parts of PyCon 2015 are you looking forward too? Tutorial Days, Lightening Talks, or Dev Sprints? Let us know by tweeting at us @AstroCodeschool.
