  • Migrating django application data
    By: Eevel Weezel
    Length: 25 Minutes
    Description: Discussion of common problems migrating Django application databases, particularly when switching DBMS.
  • Introducing Python in an after school setting
    By: Kenneth Wade
    Length: 15 Minutes
    Description: I've lead a couple once-a-week, 10-week apprenticeships that allow 5th-8th grade students to explore the basics of Python through an interactive shell at their elementary school. The students primarily use lab computers, but they are also exposed to general command-line concepts through the use of several customized Linux laptops. In this talk I will discuss my goals for the students, the concepts that I introduce, how I interact with the students, some of the challenges that arise (for myself and the students), and some tips that may be helpful to other volunteers.
  • Module the Month: Turtle
    By: Chris Foresman
    Length: 10 Minutes
    Description: In keeping with the education theme, I thought I would give a talk on the Turtle module in Python, which is more or less a clone of Logo.
