Beginner's Day Workshop @ PyCon Nove

After success at last year's PyCon Otto we are pleased to announce that PyCon Nove will host the 2nd edition of PyCon Italia Beginner's Day (on Thursday, April 19th). A fantastic event we have specially created for newcomers to the Python programming language.

If you’re thinking of coming to the conference but you’re new to Python, this could be the session for you😀.

Alternatively:

If you're not new to Python🐍, but you want to extends your skills and knowledge about a specific topic (e.g. Advanced Python Programming, Web Programming with Python, Python for Data Science), this can still be the session for you.

Whether you’re totally new to programming, or you already know another language, this three hours session, taking place on the first day of the conference, will give you a crash-course in Python, and the ecosystem around it, to give you the context you need to get the most out of the rest of PyCon Nove.
