Python PDX

- October 2015, Portland

A Pythonicly specific space focusing on ideas, projects, and best practices in need of more attention in an inclusive and welcoming environment.

Join your friends in the Cascadia Python community for two days of learning and connection. Meet new people and learn about the interesting Pythonic work being done around here. Make the Pacific Northwest an even better place to be a Python programmer.

We have a code of conduct!

Track One

Two days of talks and tutorials on Python, covering the ideas, tools, and projects that will take your programming skills to the next level.

Track Two

A guided tour to the world of Python, structured to get a new programmer up to speed on the language.
