Seattle PyCamp 2013 is graciously hosted by University of Washington Computer Science and Engineering and sponsored by the Seattle Plone Gathering.
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: September 9-13, 2013
WHERE: Classroom CSE305, The Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science & Engineering, 185 Stevens Way, University of Washington, Seattle, WA
PyCamp takes place in a state of the art high technology classroom on the campus of University of Washington. Wired Ethernet networking and AC power are provided at each seat. A video projection screen monitors the presentation computer at the front of the room. The seating is conference style where you can spread out. Restroom facilities are just down the hall. A cafeteria is conveniently located in the same building.
