Workshops, call for Mentors

This year we're trying something new, introductory workshops designed for beginners not attending the conference. It's an attempt by the Python community to reach out to the wider community. All of these workshops are being held at our venue partner, The Edge, part of the State Library of Queensland at South Brisbane.

  • DjangoGirls workshop (Monday 4th August, 9am-12pm)
  • Introduction to Programming in Python (Friday 1st August, 10am-4pm)
  • Introduction to Electronics in Python (Friday 1st August, 10am-4pm)

The full details of the workshops can be found at http://2014.pycon-au.org/programme/workshops

All of our workshops need mentors, please consider signing up as a mentor.

Final weekend for Dinner tickets

We're passing along numbers to our venue for catering on Monday, so this is your last weekend to grab tickets for our conference dinner! As well as fine food and company, we have an important speaker lined up, Paul Gampe.

Get along to the registration page and be sure to select dinner as one of the options.

We'd also like to know if you're coming along to the sprints so we can cater for them appropriately, please head along to our handy-dandy form and let us know!

DjangoGirls: Free programming workshop for women

Following the success of the amazing DjangoGirls at Euro Python, we're running a workshop on the first day of sprints.

So come along to pick up an Open Source project to work on in a supportive environment or just sprint with other girl programmers for the day.

No Django experience is required just an interest in learning.

There'll be cupcakes and excellent coaches/mentors.

We'd love to have anyone who identifies as a women to come along!
