Beginner's Day Workshop @ PyCon X

We are pleased to announce that PyCon X will host the 3rd edition of PyCon Italia Beginners' Day.

Beginners' Day is a satellite event at PyConX entirely dedicated to anyone interested in learning Python programming 🐍.

The event will be held at Grand Hotel Mediterraneo (the same location of the main conference) on Thursday May, 2 2019.

Whether you are a total newbie/wanna-be programmer 👶, a skilled programmer looking for new challenges 🤖, or if you’re simply thinking of coming to the conference and you have time to kill, well: this could be the session for you 🤓.

Our aim is to provide all the context you would need to get the most out of PyCon X and, most importantly, to have fun!

If you would love to help us, why not applying to be Mentor for the Beginners' Day.

Beginners' Day will be organised in three parallel sessions of tutorials :

A) "Absolute Beginners": learn programming using Python

B) "Web sPyder": learn web programming using Python & Django (sorry TG guys)

C) "Data Cruncher": learn basic principles of data science and number crunching using numpy (& its gang)

Every participant will choose the session they like the most, and so will join a team of other three or four mates sharing the same learning interests.

One mentor will also join the team to assist each team in their learning game.
