Python in the Classroom and at Sea
I was Ray's mentee during the summer of 2016. My project lets a player of Minecraft Pi 3D print an object they have built in the game. I will co-present this project with Peg Keiner, the Technology Director at GEMS World Academy in Chicago where my program was used in their elementary school classroom this Fall.
I will also share some neat projects from my stint this Fall as a High School Marine Science teacher aboard the schooner Roseway during Ocean Classroom (worldoceanschool.org). I introduced students to Python and had them design and code a sensor kit with Raspberry Pi's to measure an aspect of the sailboat.
The code is viewable on my github profile: https://github.com/thaneofcawdor.

Do you yearn?
Have you ever tried to volunteer at a project but had an extremely difficult time trying to get everyone the right development environment?
Do you ever work with a project that works in your computer but not in a server?
Do you have a different dependency versions? (btw, that's kinda bad practice but don't fret, we gotchu)
Yearn no more! With Docker, these things can be a thing of the past.
