Description

Think Globally, Hack Locally - Teaching Python in Your Community

Presented by Leigh Honeywell (HackLab.TO)

For over a year, HackLabTO (http://hacklab.to), a hackerspace in Toronto, has been the home of an informal Python class / hack night every Thursday evening. Our participants represent a diverse cross- section of the lab's community, and include everyone from complete beginners who hadn't written code since BASIC in high school, to seasoned veterans. Come hear about our successes and failures, and learn how to start such an event in your local community.
