Python in Education (& vice versa)


Meet Friday 8PM: open space rooms are filling up so Andy put us down for Kai Tak Int'l 8-11 PM

Please add any possible discussion topics and any possible conficts below.

  • Dinner plans for Saturday
  • Python in middle and high school
  • The Rise of the Robots - RUR-ple, Guido van Robot, and (very recently) Monty Karel
  • Do we need (or even want) a version of Scratch implemented in Python?
  • Python in CS1 or CS0.5 or CS0


One topic of the meeting Friday might be options for a dinner on Saturday.

Dinner options:

  • Local to the conference hotel
  • Greektown (take the CTA blue line that goes by the hotel, walk a couple of blocks from the west edge of downtown)
  • River North (blue line to clark/lake then a couple blocks north)
  • If anyone is interested, I can host a visit/tour and/or meeting at the Google Office on Saturday before or after the dinner. - Jessie

Persons Interested

Feel free to list your interest in attending either of the above below:

  • VernCeder (both)

  • Charles Severance (both might work - but something during the day might be nice as well)
  • Dean Goodmanson. In for dinner on Saturday. I'll be at the Board Games social in on of the open spaces area on Friday and Saturday night. I can provide some light games if folks would like to continue chats in that environment.
  • Kirby Urner, checked in (rm 730), see you at Kai Tak, interested in Saturday dinner plan (kirby.urner@gmail.com)

  • AndyHarrington, planning on both. Hearing about Google's involvement in education sounds good, too.

  • Jessie Chavez, new to python but former teacher and currently at Google in Chicago.
  • Johannes Woolard, Crunchy co-developer. Potentially interested in both.
