The Welcoming Committee provides a welcoming experience for newbies of all kinds to PyCon. If you are new to:
- public speaking
- presenting at PyCon
- Santa Clara
then the Welcoming Committee may be of service to you.
Please take a moment to help us by answering the question, "How could PyCon make you feel (even) more welcome?"
Plans are being formed for the following events.
- Prior to the Tutorial Sessions, how to install a proper python development environment and how to avoid common newbie mistakes, e.g., don't rely on the default Mac python, how to use virtualenv.
- Newbie Night, to be held Thursday, March 8, 2012, to welcome all newbies of all kinds.
The Welcoming Committee is a sub-committee of the PyCon Organizers group. Anyone who wants to own any part of Welcoming may participate.
The "committee" (it's something of a joke name, since it does not meet or vote) is loosely made up of the following people, possibly plus unnamed others. Please add yourself if you wish to help.
