Session

Programming for Everybody: CP4E

Kirby Urner, Partner, 4D Solutions

Track: Python
Date: Thursday, July 26
Time: 4:30pm - 5:15pm
Location: Portland 256

As an invitee to a summit in London last April hosted by Mark Shuttleworth (Ubuntu), Urner assisted in representing CP4E (Python's historical education initiative) to delegates from the Republic of South Africa. This experience, mixed with teaching Python to pre-college students in Portland, allows Urner to provide some up-to-date spin and perspective regarding Python's trajectory in the educational sphere.
