If you care about Python or you want to learn what all the fuss is about, then I have great news. On September 9th through the 13th, UW is proud to host the Seattle PyCamp 2013! If you have not heard about this amazing resource or want to learn more, please keep reading.

The last time PyCamp came to Seattle we hosted it here and had a great turnout from both on and off campus. This time around the class will be in a similar format but focused on Python 3.0 and taught by Chris Calloway, applications analyst for the University of North Carolina Department of Marine Sciences and a member of the Plone Foundation.

More information will be available at the Triangle Python Users Group‘s website (formerly TriZPUG).

    I just completed the Seattle PyCamp yesterday, and I just have to say that I highly, highly recommend it to anyone considering learning Python. There is a very wide range of experience levels in the course. I regard Cris as a phenomenon — he really knows what he’s talking about. He doesn’t assume any prior knowledge of Python or programming, he won’t waste your time, and he can answer anything you ask him. I liked the fact that he emphasizes first principles and didn’t shy away from tricky topics like Python’s memory management. It’s very fast paced, but non-confrontational, and he gives you plenty of opportunity to get to know people.
