PyOhio PyCamp 2013 is a program of and a benefit for the PyOhio free regional Python conference. PyOhio PyCamp and PyOhio are sponsored by the Ohio State University Open Source Club.

PyCamp represents a unique pedagogical approach. You will learn:

  • By Example - Many programming courses take the rote "reference manual" approach where you are taught all the elements of a language and then expected to apply them from memory. PyCamp teaches through Python language elements applied in working examples instead of abstract concepts.
  • By Following Along - Many programming courses lecture passive students. Others leave students to work through programming problems on their own. You will instead participate by stepping through working code line by line, building up new features and making changes as you follow along in guided labs. By repeating Python PushUps, you will retain what you learn.
  • By Pythonic Method - Every programming language has a culture and idioms which make it unique. Too many programming courses apply a generic approach to languages, resulting in programmers who write Java programs in Perl. You will learn the zenful practices which make Python the most elegant and practical of programming languages.

WHEN: July 22-26, 2013

WHERE: Senate Chambers, The Ohio Union, Ohio State University, 1739 North High Street, Columbus, OH
