  • Python in the Classroom and at Sea
    (0:15:00 Minutes)
    By: Thane Richard
    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. Join in a brief, live coding session that will show you how to build a simple Bottle app and put it into a Docker container.
